Trinamic TMCM-0960-MotionPy – Python powered…

Adafruit 2019 4820

The Trinamic TMCM-0960-MotionPy is Python powered…

The TMCM-0960-MotionPy board is an open-source single board computer running MicroPython. It comes with several communication interface options like CAN, RS485, UART, and separate GPIO headers. With a wide supply voltage range of +6…+50V and industrial Fieldbus interfaces it is the engineers’ swiss army knife for small automation applications. Plugging directly into the application for logging data on an SD card or updating subsystems without the need for additional tools, the module offers a total of 13 functions in Python programming language for ease of use.

The PDF calls it a “MicroPython SBC for Test, Dev, and Lab Automation”. This board is more of a microcontroller board (STM32), not exactly what is usually considered a SBC which is running an OS, it -is- super-interesting that more and more boards are shipping with python on them.


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Wait, so it’s just an stm32f405 dev board with some canbus drivers and rs485, and no actual motion control ic? (Just that they have some drivers that use one of those protocols?) That’s kind of a disappointment. (And it was hard to find what mcu they put on it.) Definitely not an SBC, it has an mcu not an AP. Well, at least they published the design files in KiCad format.
