1. INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW
1.1 Introduction of Interface Free Controller
IFC (Interface Free Controller) offer a new concept of developing microcontroller embedded
system and also robotics system. With IFC, no more frustration in determine hardware
interface and configuring peripheral in software. Checking few hundreds pages of data sheet
can be waved. With the concept of interfacing card, user may stack as many as 64 cards in a
system to get infinite combination of peripherals. The design aims to offer 3 simple steps in
microcontroller system development – Configure card’s address, Stack IFC cards, Write
Program and Run!
Furthermore, with functions based software library, user save valuable time during software
development by concentrating on algorithm development. No more flipping or scrolling PIC
data sheet looking for ADCON0, T1CON or even TRISA. With just a programming hand
book, user may simply copy the header file, call comprehensive functions and it’s ready to
rock.
IFC come with a brain card (main controller) where the main program is loaded. There are
several cards available for robotics development such as control panel, 15A brush motor
driver, brushless motor controller, counter and digital input, output card, Play Station 2
Controller card, analog input card, dual brush motor card and power card. This document will
focus on the Stepper Indexer card, IFC-SI02. This card has been designed with capabilities
and features as below:
• Industrial grade PCB.

There are 64 (26) communication address of IFC-SI02 that can be selected. The 6 bits
communication address is determine by selector A5 through A0 (6 set of 1x3 headers on IFCSI02). User may set the card address by using the mini jumper. However, user is required to
make sure the communication address chosen on board is compatible with program written in
Main Board.
3.2 Programmer
User does not need to prepare programmer for IFC-SI02. IFC-SI02 is one of the slave cards
of IFC system. The slave program is preloaded before shipped to customer. User will only
need the Main Board of IFC system, IFC-MB00 to control this slave card.
3.3 Input and Output device
The output devices on IFC-SI02 are as below:
• 2 status indicator LED: Power and busy LED:
- Power LED (PWR) will turn ON when power is supplied to IFC-SI02.
- Busy LED (Busy) will turn ON or blinking when IFC-SI02 is
communicating with master card, IFC-MB00.
• Motor Power In status indicator LED.
• 2 stepper motor ports for the stepper indexer cards. The stepper motors connected
can run up to 4A per channel. IFC-SI02 will be solder at 12V for motor voltage
option in default. However, user may de-solder the 12V pad and solder 24V pad if
motor used is rated at 24V.
• 2 test buttons (1 test button for each channel) for card testing. First press of the
button will drive the channel CW and second press will drive the channel CCW.
3.4 Operating Voltage
• The operation voltage of IFC-SI02 is 12V. User needs to stack a Power Card, IFCPC00, and connect a 12V battery on Power Card to supply 12V to Stepper Indexer
Card. However, user needs to connect external power source through Power In
connector on IFC-SI02 to supply voltage to stepper driver cards. The Motor Power
In status indicator LED will turn ON when either 12V or 24V external power is
connected. User may connect external power source from IFC Power Card (IFCPC00), IFC Extension Board (IFC-EB02) or external battery. Different stepper
motor driver may require different voltages. There are 12V and 24V for the user to
choose at the Power In connector. By default, IFC-SI02 power-in will be solder at
option 12V. However, user can de-solder the 12V pad and solder 24V pad if 24V is
needed as voltage input. However, please be cautious! Only 1 power pad can be
soldered, which is either 12V or 24V. Soldering both may cause the power card fuse
to blow-up. User may get the power from the channel’s output port connector’s 12V
pin.

Example using Cytron stepper driver SD02; the motor will turn one turn and stop at origin.
Default micro stepping of SD02=10
Step angle of Minebea Stepping motor (MO-STEP-17PM-K508) =1.8°
Total pulse for one round= (360°/1.8°) ×10=2000 pulses
The graph above shows the speed versus pulse. From the graph, we expect the speed to peak
at middle with a fixed acceleration. Thus, the motor will speed up for a total pulse of around
1000 pulses then slow down until speed of 1 then brake at pulse of 2000.
The maximum frequency of IFC-SI02 is set to 8000Hz, acceleration 200 and we take the
peak speed to be 25 to get the pulse value near to 1000 as show in the figure below.
From the above calculation, we will accelerate from speed 0 to speed 25. From speed of 25,
we will decelerate to speed of 1 and finally brake at encoder value of 2000. From speed of 25
to speed of 1 it will takes around 932 pulses as shown in figure below. So we need to start
decelerate at pulse or encoder value of (2000-932) = 1068.

Adding a control panel which comes with a 2 x16 character LCD and 4 programmable push
buttons will offer more interesting demonstration. Following steps show the installation of
this system and method to operate it.
a. 1st step, configure the address of cards, IFC-SI02 and IFC-CP04. Stepper Indexer
Card has 6 mini jumpers to configure communication address (A5-A0). It should be
set to 010101 if sample source code is being used. As for Control Panel, it should be
set to “CP1” (Upper side).
b. 2nd step is to stack all 4 cards together. Power card (IFC-PC00) should be at the
bottom, Main board (IFC-MB00) at 2nd layer, Stepper Indexer Card (IFC-SI02) at 3rd
layer and Control Panel at the top layer as shown in following figure.

h. 3rd step is to write program and load it into IFC. IFC comes with comprehensive
function to reduce program development time. Functions library come with the
interfacing card in the form of header file (*.h) and object file (*.o). In order to call
these functions, particular header file and object file must be included under a project.
i. Open MPLAB IDE (please ensure MPLAB C18 has been installed). User can follow
the step in chapter 6.2 of IFC-MB00 user manual to open project named “IFC-SI02”
for IFC Stepper Indexer Card. Please note that the header file (iic.h, iic_si.h and
iic_cp.h) and object file (iic.o, iic_si.o and iic_cp.o) for IFC-MB00, IFC-SI02 and
IFC-CP04 have to be included in the project. If user did not use the provided sample
source code, “Sample2_SI02.c”, user needs to include card’s header file at the
beginning of the program. Figure below shows the example on how to include header
file, object file and card’s header file.
