STM32 PMSM FOC Software Development Kit - MC library (UM1052)
  • active Active

ST’s STM32 offers the performance of the industry-standard Cortex®-M core at the service of vector (or field-oriented) control (FOC) algorithms, widely used in high-performance drives.

The STM32 PMSM FOC SDK(STSW-STM32100), which includes the PMSM FOC FW library and ST MC Workbench, allows the user to evaluate the STM32 performance in applications driving single or dual Field Oriented Control of 3-phase Permanent Magnet motors (PMSM, BLDC).

STM32 PMSM FOC SDK is part of ST's motor control ecosystem which offers a wide range of hardware and software solutions for motor control applications.

ST MC Workbench is a PC software which reduces the design effort and time in the STM32 PMSM FOC firmware library configuration. The user, through a graphical user interface (GUI), generates all parameter header files which configure the library according to the application needs and can in real time monitor and change some variables of the algorithm.
