    Good day,

    What is the general basic/simple cheap chip that takes in two inputs (step and direction) and then translates it into the 4 wire stepper control sequence.


    Thanks

    There are numerous stepper ICs out there..
    Allegro/Linear,etc.. all make them. Most are spec'd by the voltage/current per phase required, amount of microstepping,etc...
