Freescale Introduces Seven Development Kits To Ease The Design Of Automotive Motor Control Applications

Stocks in this article: FSL

Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL) today introduced a new series of fully loaded motor control development kits, offering developers one of the most integrated automotive permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) or brushless DC (BLDC) motor control solutions on the market today. The first development kits in the series feature Freescale’s Qorivva 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) built on Power Architecture ® technology and include hardware and software that help reduce the time needed to develop automotive motor control applications such as HVAC blowers, electric power steering, engine cooling fans, fuel, water and oil pumps and wipers.

The motor control development kit series offers a full breadth of multi-functional, scalable solutions that can be tailored for a customer’s unique automotive motor control needs. The initial motor control development kits are powered by the latest Qorivva 32-bit MCUs, including the MPC560xP, MPC564xL and MPC560xB families and feature the latest motor control peripherals such as FlexPWM, CTU, ADC and eTimer modules. Customers can take advantage of these modules to develop a deterministic motor control application with minimal core impact. Integral to the development kits’ software are the motor control algorithms that control the speed and motor current depending on customer demands. The Automotive Math and Motor Control Library’s modular architecture makes it easy to port the application software across the MCU families and reduce software development time by providing a precompiled software library that contains the building blocks for a wide range of motor control and automotive embedded applications.

"It usually takes a developer weeks or even months to implement a stable and optimized PMSM or BLDC motor control solution,” said Steve Pancoast, vice president of product solutions for Freescale’s Automotive, Industrial & Multi-Market Solutions Group. “Our new automotive motor control solutions based on Qorivva MCUs offer a comprehensive hardware and software package that will get a developer up and running quickly, speeding time to market while reducing overall development costs.”
