TRINAMIC launch the TCM5130 Stepper Motion Control IC with Integrated MOSFET Motor Drive

The TCM5130 delivers 46V / 2.5A (Peak) performance, which is suitable for driving, motors NEMA 11 to NEMA 23. In addition the TCN5130 is the first low cost monolithic IC to boast Trinamic’s patented ‘stealthChop™’ technology for exceptionally quiet, vibration free operation in a QFP48 (7mm x 7mm) package.

Trinamic TCM5130The TMC5130 with stealthChop™ technology is ideally suited for laboratory, office automation and other applications where machinery is located close to operators. Such environments often require noise to be strictly limited and the TCM5130 operates at a noise level 10dB below standard motor drive IC’s when using stealthChop™

Connected to a host microcontroller through an industry standard SPI or step/direction interface, the TMC5130 performs all real-time position and velocity stepper motion calculations, while its integrated low-power MOSFET directly drives stepper motor coil currents.

The TMC5130 implements Trinamic’s patented sixPoint™ jolt-minimising ramp generation profile. This profile utilises two different settings during both the acceleration and deceleration phases, which minimises motion ‘jerk’ and delivers smoother motor operation. The sixPoint ramp profile also enables motor torque to be more closely matched to an application’s requirement, producing velocity-optimised maximum acceleration times.

Application development, prototyping, design optimisation and time-to-market are all improved with Trinamic’s intuitive PC-based software development kit and TMC5130 evaluation board.
