Trinamic: breakout boards shorten time to market

Time is a precious resource. Especially with technology, it’s important to drive the industry by reducing your time to market. That’s why Trinamic is rolling out open source BOBs for their chips transforming digital information into physical motion.

From now on, one single, easy to use electrical component is everything needed for rapid prototyping – you no longer have to worry about building a final design or soldering SMD components before testing a prototype. The BOBs can be used on a breadboard or with flying wires, as all sensitive signals such as sense lines are routed on the BOBs themselves.

The breakout boards are for anyone who needs a physical prototype fast, in order to have a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). BOB has everything you need to use the component, such as sense resistors, buffer capacitors and, in some cases, even power MOSFETs or Ethernet connectors.

Trinamic’s Technology Access Package (TTAP) provides the user with a sample code and API for each of the chips found on the BOBs. The comprehensive collection of technical support information and tools for Trinamic’s motor and motion control ICs found in TTAP not only simplify the (physical) design-in and bring-up, it also speeds up firmware development. All this can be transferred to a microcontroller or used with one of the Arduino samples - minimizing the time needed for prototyping.

All Trinamic BOBs are open source hardware, with a permissive license. If the design works for you, just take the design and paste it into your board design. Or simply copy the schematics – whatever best works for you. Whether you’re an enthusiast tinkering away, a startup realizing its first MVP, or an international company creating the next groundbreaking application. Building, testing and reiterating your MVP doesn’t have to take long with Trinamic’s BOBs. The BOBs will be rolled-out for all Trinamic motor and motion control ICs.
