Lower cost, higher
reliability, better performance and shorter design cycles are the
result of ST’s innovations in motor control ICs. STM monolithic motor
drivers make DC, stepper and brushless motor control designs more
efficient in a variety of applications such as industrial, robotics,
printers, points-of-sale (ATM, vending machines, ticketing), medical
PWM controller and DMOS bridge for brush DC, bipolar stepper and
permanent-magnet 3-phase brushless motors, offering non-dissipative
easySPIN: Best trade-off
between performance and cost for microstepping applications. No
external shunts required due to an innovative current-mode
FlexSPIN: Highly integrated for
cost-driven applications such as printers. Controls and drives
multi-motor applications (stepper and DC simultaneously) or inverter
stages with its 4 fully-configurable full-bridge drivers.
dSPIN: New state-of-the-art
platform for stepper motor drives, a quantum leap in microstepping.
Substitutes expensive DSP, analog and power components with a single
Its fully-digital motion engine with SPI interface controls the stepper
motor with up to 128 microsteps, and the innovative voltage-mode
technique allows for unprecedented motion smoothness. See the dSPIN discovery.
cSPIN: SPI advanced controller
for stepper applications, providing fully digital control of the motion
through speed profile generation and positioning calculations.
It integrates a dual full bridge gate driver for external MOSFET with embedded non-dissipative overcurrent protection.
