DK-LM3S-DRV8312 Stellaris Motor-Control Kit



Texas Instruments' Stellaris® DK-LM3S-DRV8312 3-phase brushless DC motor control kit and MDL-LM3S818CNCD controlCARD module

Texas Instruments DK-LM3S-DRV8312 Stellaris Motor-Control Kit Texas Instruments' DK-LM3S-DRV8312 medium voltage, digital motor control kit for Stellaris® microcontrollers is a development platform for spinning three-phase brushless DC (BLDC) motors. The low-cost Stellaris LM3S818 microcontroller (MCU) on the MDL-LM3S818CNCD controlCARD module comes pre-programmed with the necessary firmware in flash memory to run the InstaSPIN™ BLDC motor control solution out-of-the-box once plugged into the DRV8312 baseboard. The system will automatically detect and spin a customer’s three-phase brushless DC motor. The MDL-LM3S818CNCD is a motor controlCARD module designed to operate with TI’s DRV83xx baseboards. It can be purchased with a DRV8312 baseboard as part of the DK-LM3S-DRV8312 development kit to spin three-phase brushless DC (BLDC) motors using the InstaSPIN™-BLDC motor control solution included on this kit’s CD.
