Texas Instruments announced the DRV8312-C2-KIT motor control evaluation kit for spinning brushless DC (BLDC) and permanent magnet synchronous (PMSM) motors. The sensorless field-oriented control (FOC) and trapezoidal commutation platform spins motors out of the box. It speeds the development of sub-50-V and 6.5-A brushless motors for driving medical pumps, gates, lifts, small pumps, industrial and consumer robotics and automation. The kit includes includes CCStudio IDE (no compiler or memory limitations), documentation, software source, and hardware development package (bill of materials, schematics, and gerbers). The TI DRV8312-C2-KIT is available now for $299.
Texas Instruments (TI) announced the DRV8412 evaluation kit (DRV8412-C2-KIT) for spinning motors. The DRV8412 evaluation platform for spinning motors includes all of the hardware and software needed to spin two brushed DC motors or a single stepper motor. The DRV8412-C2-KIT speeds development time for brushed DC and stepper motors running up to 6 A continuous/12 A peak at 50 V. The kit is for ideal medical pumps, gate openers, stage lighting, textile manufacturing tools, and industrial or consumer robotics. The DRV8412-C2-KIT is available now for $199 (price includes CCStudio IDE with no compiler or memory limitations).
