Embedded Artists LPCXpresso Motor Control Kit

Motor control kit

The LPCXpresso Motor Control Kit is a Development Platform for low voltage motor control based on NXP’s MCUs. With this universal platform it is possible to control BLDC, BLAC, stepper and dual brushed DC motors. This kit is compatible with LPCXpresso LPC1114 (included in kit), LPCXpresso LPC1343 and LPCXpresso LPC176x.

This new development board expands the CISIUM knowhow in the Electrical and Electronic development, covering the essential motor motion control that is very important in the embedded development. In the development board we can find out PID algorithms, current sensing per phases (shunts), power FETS, Hall Effect sensors, etc.

In the next table we can appreciate the Development Board specifications:
