Step Stick External Buffer

Board to buffer Step Stick Socket Signals for Off-Board Drivers

Similar projects worth following
There are a number of Step-Stick breakout boards to allow the nearly ubiquitous Step-Stick compatible controllers to control off-board drivers. But many off-board drivers like 5V and higher power. This is a simple board to provide a level shift and higher current(16mA) for off-board drives. The Step, Direction and Enable pins are sent to the Motor pins.

    Made one, need more notes on the silk screen on the PCB on how to assemble and insert, but it works.

  • Parts on the way
