Yes, if its a slow serial setup thing then a separate comp makes sense.
If you can setup chip parameters via SPI (like some chips I am familiar with),
hal parameters should be fine as they are not transmitted so take near 0 CPU
if not changed (and allow real time adjustments if needed)

Are you saying that some Trinamic chips can take position commands over SPI and effectively generate steps internally?

The datasheet that I just glanced at didn't seem to be saying that, for the one that I looked at.

Yes, the TMC5160 can do this and probably others
Also the ST Micro PowerStep01

Is it possible to provide a tutorial for configuring the Raspberry Pi using GPIO with LinuxCNC?
