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 best-in-class performance 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 ADSP-CM408F EZLITE kit, this system will allow you to model your system in MATLAB and Simulink, generate the C code, and deploy with IAR Embedded Workbench.

Easy connection to motors and the 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 Mixed-Signal 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.
