It would be really helpful if someone could guide me in the right direction. The driver will draw such large currents that connecting it’s power suply to the Arduino’s risks passing the power supply transients back to the Arduino. Depending on the current you want to use for the motor coils the supply current may or may not be enough. If you find any of the answers here or in any of the other questions you have asked useful, you might consider up-voting them. I’m worried that these chips are on their way to retirement!!

Does this mean that I need to use some capacitors with the or are they included inside the ??

L stepper driver guidance for CNC plotter project

The circuit should perform acceptably with this line either tied to logic high 5V or arduno low GND. Just for the record I am also not sure about the Sync ,Home and Reset pins? What is their purpose?? By clicking “Post Your Answer”, you acknowledge that you have read our updated terms of serviceprivacy policy and cookie policyand that your k297 use of the website is subject to arduio policies. After this, I intend to make a circuit using the l and the ULNB to control a unipolar stepper.

This is probably a real dumb question, but how do you use perfboard?? I think Massimo is in Sweden and I am in Canada, near the pacific, so here is part two of your international answer!


If you want to control a unipolar stepper, you can use the l with the ULNB In all cases, you will need a few extra components to complete the circuit.

Could you give me a link arduin one like you recommend?? BTW I did read the data sheet, however I still a bit confused so thank you for your summary because it made me understand a lot!!!!!

Forget the “IC Bridge” diodes You are using perf board, right?? L stepper driver guidance for CNC plotter project.

Also consider accepting an answer to any of your questions that solves your problem. It could get pretty hot with a 10V the maximum supply, and will probably be fried if you connect it to a much higher voltage supply.

Supply voltage drops are bad news for microprocessors! These large current draws make the supply voltage drop, unless your power supply can handle it. Post as a guest Name. Hi I made some stepper motor drivers with the L and L five years ago, and they still work great! Basically any Schottky diode with a 50V voltage rating and a 2 or 3 amp current rating will do the trick. Hi Jonathon, in terms of the power supply current, the bigger the better, but of course this all depends on the size of motor s you will use.

Robin2 on Aug 09, The l can create the control signals for bipolar, unipolar and variable reluctance stepper motors. Dear Dizzy Unfortunately for you, this place is full of professors like me Depending on the current you want to use for the motor coils the supply current may or may not be enough. Most probably the issues are with the oscillator or the clock pin may be the pulse is not generatingbefore posting the questionI had a quick google search which showed me I was not the ardunio onne facing this areuino.

I just checked the farnell site for the l and it is listed as no longer stocked?

I’m worried that these chips are on their way to retirement!! The general rules are: If it’s getting hot quickly with a 5V supply, it’s probably wired wrong.

My teacher asked me to design a stepper motor driver using l,l and 89c51, which can control the speed and direction. I generally use the combination of a fixed resistor in series with a potentiometer. As you can see on the diagram on page 2 of the L datasheet, arxuino is the reference voltage which goes to internal comparators and is compared to the voltages coming from the current-sense resistors.

A 9v battery is not sufficient to provide the motor current for more than a few minutes. Reference voltage for chopper circuit.
