Another consideration worth mentioning is the use of ramp tables to drive stepper motors. In certain applications, depending upon motor type, performance requirements, loading and operating speed, ramp tables are used to gradually 'ramp' up from a slower speed to the faster speed. This helps prevent the motor from stalling as it goes up to the faster speeds (which typically have different torque values than the slower speeds).
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
