Stepping motor driver ICs
Accurate position control achieved by stepping motors is being used in many applications. But in order to overcome the motor from stalling, stepping motors tend to require additional current. Therefore many engineers and users are looking for an optimised stepping motor control. Toshiba developed a unique architecture called "Active Gain Control" to overcome those requirements, and has implemented to some of the latest products.
