FlexMC Motor Control Development Platform

The FlexMC Motor Control Development Platform™ is a rapid development system for any motor control solution. The FlexMC Kit enables users to accelerate time-to-market and increase performance with powerful model-based design tools. The Boston Engineering solution combines hardware and software with out-of-the-box functionality for a brushless DC motor with hall sensor, encoder, or sensorless feedback.

Boston Engineering is Analog Devices’ exclusive motor control design partner in North America and Europe, which underscores our expertise in this area.

The FlexMC Kit Advantage

  • Model, prototype, and deploy motor control algorithms rapidly
  • Deploy for both sensored and unsensored (sensorless) motors
  • Use out-of-the-box functionality to begin testing quickly
  • Reconfigure easily for tailored development requirements including dual-motor control, alternate power stages, and custom control algorithms
  • Use our consulting services to address your expanded product development needs
