With the MOTIX motor-control kit, Infineon Technologies presents a complete system solution for motor control.
The pre-assembled kit provides everything needed to get the motor spinning in a matter of seconds: a market-proven chipset combined with pre-flashed sample software and a BLDC motor. Only a power supply needs to be connected.
Therefore, the motor-control kit enables rapid prototyping and evaluation of low voltage motor controls. Typical applications include auxiliary pumps, cooling fans, HVAC blowers, or any other application that uses three-phase, low-voltage BLDC motors.
The MOTIX motor-control kit includes the well-known MOTIX TLE9879QXA40 as part of the TLE9879 EVALKIT, as well as angle (XENSIV TLE5012B-E1000) and hall switch (XENSIV TLE4968-1L) sensor PCBs along with a three-phase BLDC motor.
All of the components are mounted in a 3D-printed housing and are ready for evaluation. The most common types of motor control algorithms — including the sensorless or hall and/or angle sensors and block commutation or field-oriented control — are implemented in the pre-built sample code. This enables the designer to compare and select the most suitable algorithm, depending on the application.
Complementing this eval kit, Infineon offers a complete and free-of-charge tool chain for software evaluation with many software examples. Several application notes and a series of online training sessions on the basics of automotive motor-control support engineers in meeting various design challenges.
