DC PMSM FOC motor drive

The STEVAL-IFN003V1 is an evaluation board based on STMicroelectronic's ARMTM Cortex-M3 core-based STM32F103CBT6 microcontroller and the DMOS fully integrated three-phase motor driver L6230PD implementing a field-oriented control of the PMSM motor.

It is designed as an evaluation environment for motor control applications in the range of 8 V to 52 V of DC bus voltage and up to 80 W, exploiting the computational power of the STM32F103CBT6. This microcontroller features internal 20 kB SRAM and 128 kB Flash, SWD debugging. The L6230PD DMOS driver features 2.8 A output peak current, non-dissipative overcurrent detection/protection, cross-conduction protection, uncommitted comparator, thermal shutdown and undervoltage lockout.

The STEVAL-IFN003V1 is provided with a USB interface specific to real-time data exchange.

With dedicated hardware evaluation features, the STEVAL-IFN003V1 board is designed to help developers to evaluate the device and to develop their own applications. The STEVAL-IFN003V1 can be used together with the STM32F103CBT6 PMSM FOC SDK and constitutes a complete motor control evaluation and development platform.
