FlexMC Motor Control Development Platform Rapid Prototyping Hardware and Software Kit
Overview The FlexMC Motor Control Development Platform is a rapid development system for any motor control solution. It is a complete hardware and software kit with out-of-the-box functionality for a brushless DC motor with hall sensor, encoder, or sensorless feedback. You can minimize your time-to-market while achieving better performance by using model based design tools coupled with the Blackfin® Processor to deliver best-in-class performance. Our libraries for MATLAB® and Simulink® or Visual DSP++ will help your company jump-start the product development process.
Hardware Description The Boston Engineering FlexMC Kit has all the hardware and software to spin the included motor with speed control “out of the box”. Complete with a PMSM motor, the Boston Engineering drive board, a power supply and the Analog Devices BF506F EZ Kit, this system will allow you to model your system in MATLAB and Simulink, generate the C code, and deploy with Visual DSP++. Or, you can use our C libraries as is!
Easy connection to motors and the Blackfin EZ Kit make this system perfect for your prototyping needs.
Software Description Utilizing System Modeling and Design concepts, the Boston Engineering FlexMC Kit contains libraries for use in MATLAB and Simulink. This high level modeling environment is perfect for engineers and scientists to develop, debug, and test their new control loops. The Boston Engineering FlexMC Kit is a powerful platform that takes advantage of the flexibility of MATLAB and Simulink from MathWorks with the power of the Analog Devices Blackfin Processor, and allows the user to model and implement motor control algorithms for sensored and sensorless motors quickly and easily. In addition, all the inherent abilities of MATLAB, such as digital filter design and fixed point scaling can be utilized and tested in the same environment. Prototype with the power of the PC using MATLAB and Simulink, then deploy with the Boston Engineering FlexMC Kit.
