How to Interface Stepper Motor With Arduino


This tutorial is going to teach you some basics on using Stepper Motor while interfacing with Arduino and Stepper Motor Driver.

Bipolar Stepper Motor is DC motor that move in discrete steps. It has multiple coils that are organized in groups called “phases”. By energizing each phase in sequence, the motor will rotate, a step at a time. In order to be able to move the motor, you will need a motor driver. Thus, stepper motor driver A4988 is designed to play this role. A4988 stepper motor driver comes with heat sink. This stepper motor driver lets you control one bipolar stepper motor at up to 2 A output current per coil.

    […] The Qwiic Step is the latest of SparkFun’s entry in the SparkX board family, which are ranges of experimental designs marketed as fully-operational devices, but without guaranteeing them being manufactured regularly in the company’s range, following the release of the Qwiic GPIO add-on board and BlackBoard C Arduino-compatible development board. The Qwiic Step is designed to enable additional functionality to a microcontroller’s I2C bus, which offers Simple control of stepper motors. […]
