DRV8889-Q1: DRV8889-Q1's electrical cycle
Part Number: DRV8889-Q1
I have a question about the microstepping of DRV8889-Q1. I am trying to run the stepper motor using 1/256 micro-stepping mode.
Not trying to sound ignorant but when the motor is running in 1/256 micro-step mode, does that mean it needs 256 PWM pulses for completing one step?
Yes, you have it right.
This means you will have 51,200 steps/ rev. In a typical 1.8 deg/ step stepper motor, you have 200 steps/ rev (360/ 1.8). Take the steps/ rev of the motor (200 in this case), and multiply by the number of microsteps to get 256 * 200 = 51,200 steps/ rev.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
