Fake microstepping in A4899 and LV8729 stepper-drivers?

I built a test jig to experiment with a friend's 16-pin A4988 stepper driver, and even added bi-directional LEDs to the outputs and, regular LEDs to the inputs, to see if it behaved as expected. By ...

What is the simplest (standard?) way to add a second clock phase that *precedes* the main clock by 90°?

My saga with the 74LS670 4 x 4-bit dual ported level triggered latches continues. I used to have a simple clock which I could run with either a tunable astable multivibrator, or with in single-step ...

Stepper Motor current rating and microstepping

I am working with stepper for first time and want some suggestions. Motor runs smooth but the problem is it gets hot after a few seconds. reason may be that i am giving it a bit higher than the rated ...
