Overview

TMC2210-EVAL Evaluation Kit is designed to facilitate the evaluation of the TMC2210 stepper motor driver ICs. The evaluation kit includes an Eselsbruecke, a TMC2210-EVAL driver board, and an MCU board Landungsbruecke. The kit enables full access to all registers, functionality, and diagnostics while offering a swift start. With probes on the bridge board, all signals between the MCU and TMC2210 are accessible for diagnostics. Users can utilize the Landungsbruecke MCU board with or without the TMC2210-EVAL board. The evaluation kit requires a TMCL-IDE graphical user interface to display results. GUI supports the usage of commands in direct mode, monitors real-time behavior visualized in graphs, and logs and stores data. Users can export settings to their firmware projects. TMC2210-EVAL Evaluation Kit is best utilized for applications including printers and POS, HVAC, textiles, CCTV, and security.

TMC2210 Stepper Motor Driver IC 

TMC2210 is a stepper motor driver IC with additional diagnostic outputs and configuration options via package pins. It includes the stepper motor, two completely integrated 36V, 3.0 A (max) H-Bridges, non-dissipative Integrated Current Sensing (ICS), and an indexer with 256 micro steps. ADI Trinamic's StealthChop2 chopper provides noiseless operation combined with maximum efficiency and motor torque. Swift integration, energy efficiency, and a small form factor enable scalable and miniaturized systems for cost-effective solutions. 

Trinamic TMC2210-EVAL Evaluation Kit Features 

The TMC2210-EVAL enables the TMC2210 to be evaluated either alone or in combination with the TRINAMIC evaluation board system. In order to evaluate various operating modes, it makes use of the standard schematic and provides a number of alternatives. For two-phase bipolar stepper motors up to 2.0 A RMS (3.0 A peak), the TMC2210 is a step/dir driver. 

Getting Started with Trinamic TMC2210-EVAL Evaluation Kit 

  1. Install the latest version of the TMCL-IDE 3.5. Users can download it from the website too.  

  2. Open the TMCL-IDE and connect the Landungsbruecke via USB to the computer. Users may need to install a driver, in case of using Windows 7. 

  3. Verify that the Landungsbruecke is using the latest firmware version. The firmware version is shown in the connected device tree.

  4. Arrange the main window related to your needs by using full-screen mode. For evaluation boards, it is essential to have access to the registers. Users can open up the Register Browser for more details. 

  5. TMCL-IDE includes a dialogue window for diagnostic tasks. This provides an overview of the connected motion controller and driver chips. Users can use the second tab of the dialogue to choose basic settings or to reset the module to factory defaults.

Applications

TMC2210-EVAL Evaluation Kit is perfect for applications including printers and POS, 3D printers, office and home automation, compatible design upgrade, and HVAC. The evaluation kit is also used in textiles and sewing machines, antenna positioning, CCTV and security, ATMs, and cash recyclers.
