Cause of Vibration in Stepper Motors

When a stepper motor makes a move from one step to the next, the rotor doesn't immediately stop. the rotor actually passes the final position, is drawn back, passes the final in the opposite direction and continues to move back and forth until it finally comes to a rest. We call this "ringing" and it occurs every single step the motor takes.
