Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield for Arduino - microstep resolutio

by mrhahn on Thu Jul 19, 2018 5:11 am

Hi there,
I'd like to know if the shield https://www.adafruit.com/product/1438 is suitable to obtain microstep resolution of 1/32. if not, what is the maximum resolution available?

Thanks in advance

Microstepping is achieved in software. The current library supports 8x and 16x microstepping. The PWM controller on the shield has 12 bit resolution, so it should be possible to achieve 32x microstepping with some library modifications.
