Fastest Motor - Stepper vs DC
January 8, 2013
Hi all.I am building a drum machine for a university project and i need some help.
I am currently controlling a 9v stepper motor with 4 wires(Bipolar) with pic 16f877a, programming with micro c.
The speed i have reached it's not very fast between the bits (Forward and Backward movement and again) so it's a little slow playing with the stick.
I want to make this movement faster.Which motor is best for this Forward and Backward movement? A stepper motor or a DC and how many volts?What do you recommend?
Also i didn't found L293D and i am using L293B (Full bridge) and it's working fine.You think i can do my job with B or you suggest the L293D ? I think a difference it's a diode but i don't know what it does.
Thanks,any help appreciated.
