Bipolar Stepper Motor
In bipolar stepper motors, current can flow in both directions; a full-bridge converter is required to drive each of the two windings of a two-phase motor...
Unipolar Stepper Motor
In unipolar stepper motors, stator windings share a common terminal; the free terminal of each winding is connected to a separate power...
