The InstaSPIN™-FOC enabled C2000™ Piccolo LaunchPad is an inexpensive evaluation platform designed to help you leap right into the world of sensorless motor control using the InstaSPIN-FOC solution. The LaunchPad is based on the Piccolo TMS320F28027F with unique features such as 64KB of on board flash, 8 PWM channels, eCAP, 12bit ADC, I2C, SPI, UART, and InstaSPIN-FOC in on-chip execute only ROM memory.
The LaunchPad includes many board hardware features such as an integrated isolated XDS100v2 JTAG emulator for easy programming and debugging, 40 PCB pins for easy access to the pins of the F28027F processor, reset button and programmable button, etc.
The BOOSTXL-DRV8301 is 10A, 3-phase brushless DC drive stage based on the DRV8301 pre-driver and CSD18533Q5A NextFET™ power MOSFET. The module has 3x low side current sense amps (2 internal to DRV8301, 1 external). The module also has a 1.5A step down buck converter, is fully protected with short circuit, thermal, and shoot-through protection, and is easily configured via a SPI interface. This boosterpack is ideal for those wishing to learn about sensorless brushless control techniques and drive stage design.
