Here's a typical AA-battery powered 32 kHz quartz clock

Apply 1.5 volts here

Apply 'scope leads at the ends of the stepper motor coil

Here's a view of the bi-phase pulses going to the coil

Close-up of one pulse; about 50 ms wide, or 1/20th, 5% duty cycle

Symmetrical negative pulse

The IC has a 32 kHz sinewave output

And a 1 kHz square wave output
