Simple Step soon to release a new motion control system!

Simple Step has been in the design phase of the new -6x motion control boards. This new controller system will have a new microprocessor and drive system that will allow for the following new improved system attributes. Here is the general outline of what will be available.

  • 72 to 150MHz Cortex-M4+ NXP processor with built in numeric microprocessor.
  • 2 oz copper on all controllers for better heat dissipation.
  • Full, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64, 1/128 and 1/256 microstepping.
  • Stepping speeds slightly over 8,000,000 steps per second in ALL stepping modes.
  • Built in real-time (<500ns) Home and Limit switch detection.
  • Encoder input good to 1.8MHz with Integer/Decimal fractional registers.
  • Programmable slope control in steps per second square with the possibility to use a new 4 point slope profile for each slope (to be determined at a later time).
  • All MicroLC boards will produce 2.0 amps per phase and all MicroMC boards will produce 4.0 amps per phase. No heat sinks will be required.
