    I have some stepping motors I want to use in a project.

    My question is, do I apply a constant voltage to increment/decrement the motor and the motor increments/decrements at a preset interval or do I have to apply a voltage pulse such as using a 555 timer circuit and send a intermittent voltage based at any interval set by the timer circuit?

    I am new to stepping motors and just wanted to get some basics on how to drive them.

    Also how do calibrate them and make them return to "home" position once my module's task is complete?

    I hope I explained this well.

    Thank you in advance.
