It's no great problem to design a stepper/ encoder feedback control
system - anything that will output phased pulses, any encoder input
device (HCTL20xx). The big problem is what to do wih the feedback. You
can't just put in a voltage (very roughly speed) gain as in a servo
system - if you throw thousands of steps suddenly at a stepper, it just
I suspect what the OP wants is something to check that the drive is
still going, so he can implement a recovery strategy in case of error.
And what you do then depends entirely on the system you are
