L6480 Discovery: development tool to explore L6480 motor controller

The L6480 Discovery is a low cost development tool to explore the L6480 motor controller.

The EVAL6480H-DISC is an ideal starter kit for both beginners and experienced users, it is autonomous and can be used with a software interface, or it can be used with custom firmware thanks to the embedded microcontroller.

Through the available GUI a user can easily set the full configuration of application parameters. The “Plug and Play” tool offers high motor control flexibility thanks to the wide operating voltage range from 10.5 V to 85 V and the current capability up to 7.8 Ar.m.s. It is equipped with LED indicators for a specific ready, busy, and error warning.
