Unipolar Stepper Motor BoosterPack for MSP430 Launchpads

January 28, 2013 By: admin Category: Motor No Comments →

This project extends MSP430 Launchpads functionality to include the operation of a unipolar stepper motor. It uses ULN2003V12 Inductive Load Sink Driver which configured to drive a 6/5 wire unipolar stepper motor. Eight LEDs are used to indicate power output to unipolar stepper motor.

USB-CAN Dual Axis Motion Control System

February 25, 2011 By: admin Category: Control, Digital, Interfacing, Microcontroller, Motor, PIC, Project, USB No Comments →

This low cost distributed motion controller system consists of two units: a USB-CAN converter and a dual axis controller. The USB-CAN converter uses the PIC18F258 and a FTDI FT245BM USB interface chip to translate messages between the USB and CAN buses. While PIC18F458-based dual axis controller is kept busy implementing servo/stepper trajectory and PID calculations […]

AVR based PCB Drill Machine

November 29, 2010 By: admin Category: AVR, Microcontroller, Motor, Project, Tools No Comments →

This project shows you how to construct a PCB drill machine driven by a master-controller board and three stepper motor driver boards. These four single sided PC boards each contain an Atmega16/32 microcontroller. Communication between the boards is performed using the RS485 protocol with all communication initiated by the master-controller. The PCB drill machine firmware […]

Low-Power Shaft Encoder

November 21, 2010 By: admin Category: AVR, Microcontroller, Motor, Project No Comments →

The project describes a simple, low power, low cost shaft encoder built around a small stepper motor and an ATtiny13 microcontroller. It can be implemented as Jog Dials on portable devices (such as portable mp3 player) and low cost PDAs ; wherein the dial can be used to quickly type in a short message by […]
