Abstract

Stepper motors are small electric motors whose shaft rotation can be accurately controlled
by electronic pulses (a ―step‖ pulse). They are able to provide a simple solution in applications where
positional or accurate speed control is required without the need for position sensing – i.e. open loop
control. In order to maintain reliable control careful consideration must be given to the timing of the
step pulses. This paper describes a novel approach to the design of the software for a low cost
microcontroller that will generate the step pulses to accelerate and decelerate the motor, thereby
maintain positional integrity.
