Karthik posted a topic in Papilio ProHi! I am trying to use a Papilio Pro to run a stepper motor since the Teensy, Arduino microcontrollers proved insufficient for my purposes. I am interfacing the Papilio pro with the L6470 IC which is going to be the motor driver. My main problem is this - I am keen on using a Python module to control the stepper motor but I have no clue as to how to go about writing the code for the Papilio Pro which will be the board that will receive the bits sent via the Python code and will reroute it through the IC which will translate that in to stepper motion. The bits here are basically my position, speed values, etc. I have plans for sending entire waveforms, say, to make the motor oscillate between two positions and so on. I was wondering how I should go about this project?
