The FlexMC Motor Control Development Platform is a rapid development system for any motor control solution. The FlexMC Kit has the hardware and software required to spin the kit’s permanent magnet synchronous motor under open or closed loop speed control in conjunction with an ADSP-CM408 EZ Kit. The software is provided as an executable file which can be flashed to the ADSP-CM408 processor using the ADI serial boot-loader utility. A .NET-based graphical user interface (GUI) is provided to enable motor start-stop, speed control, and data visualization. Sample C-code is also provided for open loop Volts/Hertz control of a motor.
This development platform can be purchased from ADI here. The kit version (EV-MCS-LVDRV-Z) includes the motor, encoder, power supply and cables, while the board-only version (EV-MCS-LVBRD-Z) includes the power board only.
This FAQ provides guidance on how to get the platform up and running and how to download the required demo software and a sample C-code project is provided in this FAQ.
The board schematic, bill of materials and design files are included as attachments to this post.
