Microchip Expands Support for Motor Control with New Tools and Libraries

20 FEBRUARY 2009

Microchip announces expanded support for Motor Control applications based on the dsPIC® Digital Signal Controller (DSC). The dsPICDEMTM MCLV Development Board (part #DM330021) is a new low-voltage Brushless DC (BLDC) motor-control development platform supporting the dsPIC33F family of motor control DSCs. It provides a cost-effective method for evaluating and developing sensored or sensorless BLDCs and Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) control applications.
The board contains a three-phase inverter bridge circuit, which can drive a BLDC or PMSM motor using different control techniques, without requiring any additional hardware. The dsPICDEM MCLV board is capable of controlling motors rated up to 48V and 15Amps, and supports multiple communication channels, such as USB, CAN, LIN and RS-232. It employs a processor-differentiated Plug-In Module (PIM) strategy to support a variety of dsPIC33F motor-control DSCs with different memory and pin configurations. The dsPICDEM MCLV Development Board also includes a dsPIC33FJ32MC204 PIM (32kB Flash 44pins).
