The Stackable Stepper Motor Controller Snap On Board is designed to provide the stepper motor Controller interface (isolated) to the development boards having SantaCruz short expansion headers. This board snaps on to the SantaCruz connectors on the base development board and gives isolated/non isolated interface to drive the stepper motors of different ratings.
The SLS Stackable Stepper Motor Snap On board is designed to snap on Altera Standard Santacruz header. If you have a DE1 or a DE2 board you can use E-Gasket, a SantaCruz to DE1/2 header convertor.
Snaps on to Santa Cruz connector (short expansion).
Provides provision to connect Stepper Motors of different ratings.
Supports cascading of up to 8 Snap On boards, which can control a total of 8 stepper motors of different ratings simultaneously
Spring terminals for motor connections
Small form factor
Four driver outputs (Y1, Y2, Y3 and Y4) for four windings of the stepper motor, which can be configured for any customizable use depending upon application requirement
Provides platform for the development of stepper motor controller with any type of user interface that is limited only by peripheral set available on the base board and Snap On board
Provides platform for the development of stepper motor controller with any type of control action and stepping action desired that is limited only by the stepper motor being used
Capable of driving stepper motor using +5V supply obtained from SantaCruz headers (eliminating requirement of using external supply)
Provision for using external supply to drive stepper motor of different voltage rating
Stackable Stepper Motor Controller Snap on Board
Reference designs for UP3, DE1 and DE2 boards
Board Reference Manual
Driving two stepper motors remotely with IR Keyboard
The support services on the phone were commendable. Once we had SLS on the phone and in house they were very knowledgeable - Erik Malone, Qualcomm (USA)
Your software & electronic hardware(PCB Design,assembly etc) design capability is world class. - S.K.Biswas, BHEL (Bhopal, India)
I would like to thank you for your excellent support and willingness to help. I am glad that I did get to know SLS - Mauritz Zondagh, Saab (South Africa)
I'd like to congratulate the winners of the Echelon Innovator of the Year award. GreenWave Reality and SLS represent some of the very best customer benefits and technical achievements of the Smart Grid - Ron Sege, chairman and CEO of Echelon.
