Sponsored by Micromo
The lure of microstepping a two-phase stepper motor is compelling and the promise of increased resolution is enticing, so where’s the catch?       The real compromise is that as you increase the number of microsteps per full step the INCREMENTAL torque per microstep drops off drastically. Resolution increases but accuracy will actually suffer.  Before you make design commitments, learn the myths and realities behind microstepping.
