Three-Phase Brushless/PMSM Low Current Motor Control Solution with InstaSPIN Software


This reference design demonstrates a motor control solution for spinning medium voltage three-phase brushless DC (BLDC) and brushless AC (BLAC) motors- often referred to as permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) - featuring the C2000™ InstaSPIN™ TMS320F28069M microcontroller and the DRV8312 3-phase motor driver. The reference design features InstaSPIN-FOC field oriented control technology and InstaSPIN-MOTION speed and position control technology. With Texas Instruments’ InstaSPIN technologies: designers of all skill levels can implement a high-performance: power efficient: cost-effective: sensorless field-oriented control platform with robust movement capabilities. Applications include sub-50V and 3.5A synchronous motors for driving pumps: gates: lifts: fans: as well as both industrial and consumer robotics and automation.

  • Three phase motor inverter supporting up to 50V and 3.5A (continuous): great for spinning medium voltage motorsSensorless motor control implemented via InstaSPIN™ field oriented control technology: included with the C2000™ InstaSPIN™ TMS320F28069M microcontrollerAccelerate: position: and plan advanced movements with included InstaSPIN-MOTION technology on the C2000 InstaSPIN TMS320F28069M microcontrollerSpin brushless DC (BLDC) and permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM)—or brushless AC (BLAC) motorsFully-functional evaluation board includes NEMA17 55W Motor: operating software: hardware design files: quick start graphical interface and step-by-step documentationNOTE: Software and documentation for this board can be found inside the Motorware™ software package.
