C2x InstaSPIN™ FOCInstaSpin

InstaSPIN™-FOC (field-oriented-control) technology enables designers — even those with limited motor control experience — to identify, tune and fully control any type of three-phase, variable speed, sensorless, synchronous or asynchronous motor control system in just minutes.

This new technology removes the need for a mechanical motor rotor sensor to reduce system costs and improve operation using TI's new software encoder (sensorless observer) software algorithm, FAST™ (flux, angle, speed and torque), embedded in the read-only-memory (ROM) of Piccolo devices. This enables premium solutions that improve motor efficiency, performance and reliability in all variable-speed and load-motor applications.

Control CardsC2000 controlCARDs detach the C2000 processor and all necessary support circuitry from development boards, and instead, assemble these onto modular adapter cards, called “controlCARDs”. With the C2000 controlCARD platform, a designer can evaluate multiple C2000 MCUs using the same development board. Simply unplug the old controlCARD and plug-in a new controlCARD. By separating the MCU and support circuitry from the development board, controlCARDs simplify hardware prototyping and reduce replacement costs.
