What is a Stepper Motor?
Learn the basics of a stepper motor. In simplified terms, the rotor of a stepper motor consists of permanent magnets with poles and a stator with windings. The rotor is constructed using a single magnet mounted in line with the rotor axis and two pole pieces with many teeth. The teeth are staggered to produce many salient poles. The stepper motor is easy to position and moves in steps based on pulses supplied to the stator windings. The direction of rotation is changed by reversing the pulse sequence and speed is controlled by the frequency of pulses or pulse rate. The "Micro Stepping Details" below demonstrates this principle for a stepper motor using full step commutation. Just as the rotor aligns with one of the stator poles, the second phase is energized. The two phases alternate on and off, and also reverse polarity. There are four steps. One phase lags the other phase by one step. This is equivalent to one fourth of an electrical cycle or 90°. Stepper motors have a high holding torque but they cannot run at high speeds.

Phase-Shifted Full-Bridge (PSFB) Quarter Brick DC/DC Converter Reference Design Using a dsPIC DSC
Recently, Intermediate Bus Converters (IBCs) have become popular in the telecom power supply industry. Most telecom and data communication systems contain ASIC, FPGAs and integrated high-end processors. These systems require higher currents at multiple lowlevel voltages with tight load regulations. Traditionally, bulk power supplies deliver different load voltages. In the conventional Distributed Power Architecture (DPA),the front-end AC/DC power supply generates 24V/48V and an individual isolated Brick Converter supports the required low system voltages. These systems become inefficient and costly where very low voltages are required. In the Intermediate Bus Architecture (IBA), the IBC generates 12V/5V. Further, these voltages are stepped down to the required load voltages by Point of Loads (PoLs). In IBA, the high-density power converters, IBC and PoLs are near to the load points, which bring considerable financial gains with the improved performance. Because these converters are at the load points, PCB design will be simpler with reduction in losses. Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is also considerably reduced due to minimum routing length of high current tracks. Due to the position of these converters, the transient response is good and the system performance is improved. Modern systems require voltage sequencing, load sharing between the converters, external communication and data logging.
