A stepper motor is a small brushless synchronous electric motor that can divide a full rotation into a large number of steps. If it is electronically connected to the MCU, the motor's position can be controlled with precision without any feedback mechanism.

 

The purpose of this example is to demonstrate how to control a Stepper Motor using the TWR-S08PT60 , including modules as TSI.

 

The touch sensing electrodes control the stepper motor, its direction, step type and stop.

Quick Start for beginners to drive a Stepper Motor

 

The code was generated and compiled on CodeWarrior for Microcontrollers v10.6 and Processor Expert 10.3 for the Freescale HCS08 series of microcontrollers.

 

Please be aware that the motor is connected to the microcontroller through a current driver.
