The Azteeg X5 GT is a 32 bit ARM based Motion controller for 3D printers, CNC Machines and Laser cutters. The X5 GT runs on Smoothieware firmware and is based on Smoothieboard by the awesome Arthur Wolf. The X5 GT uses the powerful 32bit, 120Mhz NXP LPC1769 ARM chip capable of faster calculations for faster and smoother movements.

Configuration is easier using a text based configuration file loaded on the SD card, no need to upload firmware every time you make a change. Just edit the config file from your PC then reboot the board with the new config and you're done.

The X5 GT features the new Bigfoot stepper driver footprint which is twice the size of the regular drivers. This footprint allows higher current drivers to run on the X5 GT for demanding CNC applications. It also allows use of more advanced SPI controlled drivers. The X5 GT will accept both Bigfoot and Pololu style drivers.

Recommended Stepper Drivers for X5 GT (with digipot current control)
  • SD5984 - Based on allegro's new A5984 chips. Quieter and smoother than most drivers, 1/32 microstepping, 2 Amps 40V max. With Adaptive Percent Fast Decay feature.
  • SD6128 - Based on Sanyo's THB6128 chips. Quiet and smooth like the SD5984, 1/128 microstepping, 2A 35V max.
  • SD8825 - Based on Ti DRV8825. Robust and runs cool. 1/32 microstepping, 2.5A 40V max. Good choice for heftier motors
  • Bigfoot BSD109A - 3A 50V. 1/32 microstepping. Good choice for CNC applications
  • Bigfoot BSD2100 - Based on TMC2100. Quiet and smooth. Jumpers to modify settings.
  • Bigfoot BSD2660 - Based on TMC2660. SPI setup and configuration including current limit and microstepping. 3A 30V. For 3D printing and CNC applications. Super quiet and smooth. 1/256 microstepping.
Most 3rd party drivers will work with the X5 GT but current limit adjustment for the driver needs to be done manually using the trimpot. Panucatt stepper drivers has extra pins to make use of the digipot feature.
