Unlike most stepper motor drivers, the dSPIN is controlled over an SPI link. It has an on-board 16MHz oscillator which allows it to autonomously execute movement commands. That means no more counting steps in your code! It also supports customized acceleration and deceleration profiles to prevent jerky starts and stops. On-board registers track current speed and location.
This L6470 Stepper Driver Breakout makes it easy to put the dSpin to work in your project. Simply connect your motors and your SPI-capable microcontroller and get steppin'!
