Texas Instruments' medium voltage, digital motor control kit for Stellaris® LM4F microcontrollers (DK-LM4F-DRV8312) is a development platform for spinning three-phase brushless DC (BLDC) motors. The low-cost Stellaris LM4F211 microcontroller (MCU) on the MDL-LM4F211CNCD controlCARD module comes with the necessary firmware and graphical user interface (GUI) to run the Texas Instruments' (TI) InstaSPIN™ BLDC motor control solution or sensorless, sliding-mode observer (SMO) FOC motor control solution out-of-the-box.
The DK-LM4F-DRV8312 motor control kit contains a cost-effective, high-performance Stellaris LM4F211 MCU-based controlCARD module compatible with other TI motor control platforms. In addition to instantly spinning your motor, the kit also demonstrates the InstaSPIN BLDC motor control solution's operational advantages with simplified tuning, immediate acceleration adaptation, reliable low-speed operation, and more. The included GUI software solution enables users to control and monitor the total solution through an easy-to-use PC application that can be extended for customer applications.
