dsPICDEM™ MCLV-2 Development Board (Motor Control Low-Voltage)

Part Number: DM330021-2

Summary:

The dsPICDEM™ MCLV-2 Development Board provides a cost-effective method of evaluating and developing 3-phase sensored or sensorless Brushless DC (BLDC) and Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) control applications.  The board supports Microchip’s 100-pin motor control Plug-In-Modules (PIMs) for the dsPIC33C, dsPIC33E and dsPIC33F Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) and also for View More

Summary

The dsPICDEM™ MCLV-2 Development Board provides a cost-effective method of evaluating and developing 3-phase sensored or sensorless Brushless DC (BLDC) and Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) control applications.  The board supports Microchip’s 100-pin motor control Plug-In-Modules (PIMs) for the dsPIC33C, dsPIC33E and dsPIC33F Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) and also for the PICM32MK and ATSAME70 families.  The board supports the use of the internal on-chip op amps found on certain dsPIC® or PIC32MK devices, or the external op amps provided on the MCLV-2 board.  A dsPIC33EP256MC506 Internal Op Amp PIM (MA330031) is included with the board. The board is capable of controlling motors rated up to 48V and 10A (with TC1 modifications), with multiple communication channels such as USB, CAN, LIN and RS-232.  The MCLV-2 replaces and is fully backwards compatible with the original MCLV (DM330021).
