I'd like to get my hands on a few for testing. I hope that minimum order of 1,000 is just a suggestion.

I want to build a small but high powered stepper driver, and this looks like a good option.

Is there an easy way to convert step signals from USB to parallel without CAM package restriction?

Thanks for the perspective, naperlou. It seems that "less is more" is becoming a theme in motion-control systems, as smaller yet more complex devices require more precision and less bulk. Appreciate your comment.

Reducing the motor control function to a single chip is a great way to reduce component count.  These functions are driven by physics and a broad range of motors, thus giving flexibility, but not requiring a fully generalized solution.
