TMC2208 Configurator

With the TMC2208 Configurator you can change the settings and program the OTP (One-Time-Programmable) memory of a Trinamic TMC2208 via the UART interface.

To run the program:

  • Install ScriptCommunicator
  • Download TMC2208.scez
  • Start the TMC2208.scez file with the ScriptCommunicator: ScriptCommunicator TMC2208.scez
  • Choose the right serial port and click Connect
  • Modifications in the Configurator are directly transmitted
  • Notes:
    • The OTP bits can be programmed only one time.
    • If you enable spreadCycle then TOFF cannot be 0 (null).

You can use every RS232 serial adapter with 0-5V logic levels (e.g. FTDI-Breakout) and the SilentStepStick Tester/Programmer can be used as connection adapter.

Note: The jumper next to the PDN_UART pin has to be closed on the TMC2208 SilentStepStick to enable the pin access via the pin header.
