The new SilverPak 23DE, an integrated Nema 23, High Torque, 1.8° bipolar step motor, microstepping driver and encoder is designed to reduce overall design time and system cost for a wide array of step motor applications needing high torque. The SilverPak 23DE is 2.25 inches in width and is offered in three body lengths: 2.52, 2.96 and 3.89 inches. Depending on its stack size, the integrated motor/driver is capable of producing up to 294 oz-inch of holding torque. The SilverPak 23DE operates from 15 to 48V dc and the available phase current ranges from 0.3 to 3A peak. This integrated motor/driver combination features jumper configurable step resolutions ranging from 2X microstepping up to 256X microstepping and 4 selectable damping modes, optically isolated step, direction and disable/enable inputs, under-voltage and over-temperature protection, and Pole Damping Technology™ (PDT). Options available with the built-in encoder are Tracks up to 100,000 cycles/sec, 32 to 1250 CPR, Max 5000 pps, 2 channel quadrature TTL squarewave single ended outputs and optional index.

With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
If you’re developing an embedded monitoring and control application, then you’ll want to take note of the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Embedded Development Using Microchip Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
