PMSM FOC motor driver based on the L6230 and STM32F103
  • active Active

The STEVAL-IFN003V1 demonstration board is based on STMicroelectronics’ ARM™ Cortex-M3 core-based STM32F103 microcontroller and the DMOS fully integrated three-phase motor driver L6230 implementing field-oriented control of a PMSM motor.

The board is designed as an evaluation environment for motor control applications in the range of 8 V - 48 V of DC bus voltage and up to 45 W, exploiting the computational power of the STM32F103. This microcontroller features internal 20 KB SRAM and 128 KB Flash, and SWD debugging. The L6230 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 specific USB interface for the real-time data exchange.

Offering dedicated hardware evaluation features, the STEVAL-IFN003V1 board is designed to help developers evaluate the device and develop their own applications. The STEVAL-IFN003V1 can be used together with the STM32 PMSM single/dual FOC SDK v3.0 and constitutes a complete motor control evaluation and development platform.
