Drives bipolar stepper motors in full-, half-, quarter- and eighth-step modes Maximum output drive capability is 30V and about ±500mA Screw terminal and B5B-XH-A connectors included in package (unsoldered) for connecting your motor Powered by host or external source 3.3V or 5V I/O lines
STEPPER click is a stepper motor driver board in mikroBUS form factor. It features the A3967SLBT microstepping motor driver with a built-in translator. You can use it to drive bipolar step motors in full-, half-, quarter- and eighth-step modes with output drive capability of 30V and about ±500mA.
Two sets of connectors are included, unpopulated, so you can decide how to connect your motor. One option is a pair of screw terminals. The other is a B5B-XH-A connector to easily plug in or unplug a compatible stepper motor (e.g. 28BYJ-48). The image below shows what each connection option looks like when populated:
This module communicates with a host board via mikroBUS AN, RST, CS, PWM and INT lines. An SMD jumper is used to select 3.3V or 5V I/O lines. It is in the 3.3V position by default. Power can be supplied either through the mikroBUS lines or externally via screw terminals. A pin jumper allows you to switch between them easily.
An SMD solder jumper is available to activate the motor driver's enable pin (#EN). It is in the OFF position by default.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards come with header pins that you must solder yourself. After that, they just plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. Newer (v7) development systems manufactured by mikroElektronika, which we carry, have mikroBUS sockets already built in.
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
