Hello everybody!
The question is like the title. The partnumber of my stepper motor is 57BYGH206AG10. It turns 1.8 degrees per step, and the current is 1.0A.
how to drive it?
If i use PWM, what should i do?
If i use DAC and microstepping, could you give me some useful partnumber of chip.
If i use CMOS, what should i do?

That's my first time to control the stepper motor, and it needs more moment. Thank you!

Just drive it with any bipolar stepper driver using the two outer windings, in your case it's black-green and red-blue.

I believe 57BYGH is the motor size, 206 is the specific motor number and I have no idea what AG10 is, most of the info i found was in chinese, good luck.

Thank you, chiba,could you please show me some schematics.

I use Modules like GSD200 and GSD200S to drive my steppers, they limit current and can handle high supply voltages, therefore the steppers end up being much faster than running at there rated puny voltage. I have tried building various types of stepper drivers but i have yet to match the performance of modules:

Thank you, chiba, i saw them.
And i have another question: i found that the chips of driver are always for the two-phase stepper motor, are there any chips for four-phase stepper motor.Although i could use the two-phase driver chip on the four-phase stepper motor, that will make the current fall.However, i want to make the torque as big as possible.
Well,could you give me some advices.Thank you!

Allegro's UCN 5804B should work well.

You may want to just search for unipolar stepper drivers and see what else you find.

Here's a good tutorial that explains a lot of info in general:

Thank you chiba,
that Jones on stepping motor is very useful, im studying.

and you mean i should use the unipolar, isnt it?Therefor, if i control two motor, i should use four unipolar stepper drivers,right? and what about bipolar stepper drivers?

im a newbie on the control of motor, sorry for the easy question.

Huh? Jackaroo? I'm guessing that Australian English is not your native language. I think you have used 'Jackaroo' is the wrong context. Doesn't quite make sense.

See:

Thank you Phasor, you are right, im a Chinese girl, therefor, English is not my mother language. i have corrected, is that right?

sorry for poor vocabularies.
