    Mathworks FOC on LAUNCHXL-F28027 + BOOSTXL-DRV8301

    Interested in Field-Oriented Control (FOC) and motor solutions? Then check out this solution from MathWorks on how to implement closed-loop FOC to regulate speed and torque of a three-phase Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM). This project takes advantage of the Texas Instrument's TMS320F28027 LaunchPad ( LAUNCHXL-F28027 ) and DRV8301 BoosterPack ( BOOSTXL-DRV8301 ) to get your motor spinning. http://www...

    Come and Get It -- DRV8302 Motor Pre-Driver Available Now!

    Hi Everyone, As a follow up to our Sept. 9 new release announcing the industry’s most highly integrated motor pre-drivers, I’m pleased to announce that samples of the DRV8302 are now available. The DRV8302 is H/W control version of the DRV8301 (I.E. no SPI bus to configure / manage). The DRV8302 and DRV8301 reduce board space by as much as 60% compared to the next closest integrated solution. Both devices...

    New motor pre-driver reduces board space 60% while driving up to 60-A FETs

    Today we announced t he DRV8301 , the most highly integrated motor pre-driver available today, reducing board space as much as 60% compared to the next closest integrated solution. It can drive up to 60-A with external FETs, providing current scalability, improved thermal performance and greater efficiency in BLDC and PMSM applications. The DRV8301 integrates the following into a 14-mm x 8.1-mm HTSSOP package...
