Post DIY Toshiba TB6600HQ driver board.
I wanted some stepper drivers with a bit more grunt than my EasyDrivers, but found that commercial boards based on the Toshiba TB660HQ chip were a bit pricey. No-one appeared to be producing the same kind of 'break-out board' design like the easyDriver and it's relatives, so I ordered some chips and decided to design my own. Then I discovered this HAD been done before!

The link is to a CNC forum in French, not a language I'm fluent in, where the Eagle board and schematic files are available to download. I'd be interested in any comments anyone has on the design and in translations of any significant comments on the original forum.

My plan is to try and make a narrower version of the board using surface mount components so I can mount 4 of them on a length of chunky 'L' section aluminium I have in the scrap bin.

Hi Mike yep still using one on my 3D printer extruder head no problems so far . If i remember correctly they don't get good web reviews but no of these cheap Chinese drivers seem to .
Still using Beds on me big rig hope to change at some point considering going closed loop for track and swing . As these are more easily effected by external forces . In fact just in process of a few changes on the crane just making it into a more a studio item similar to the Volo . My days of outdoors timelapse are over i think

Morning guys,

Thanks Mike, I must admit I hadn't seen these as I was searching on the 6600 chip not the 6560. I've bought the 5 amp beasties now anyway so will have to make something cunning like a 4 axis board with built in 'Arduino'. I'm planning to run them at 36v to get the most out of my current NEMA 17 motors and be future-proofed against wherever this CNC bug takes me.

I am going to finish my animated movie eventually, honest.
