Motor control solutions for low-voltage stepper and brushless DC motors

Watch Now

Watch the 1-hour webinar recording on the design of motor control solutions, focusing on stepper and brushless DC (BLDC) motors.

we will introduce the STSPIN family and our portfolio of motor control drivers for stepper, DC and 3-phase, brushed and brushless motors.

A motor control solution is typically composed of 3 main blocks: a microcontroller, a gate driver, and power transistors, in addition to the motor. These can be combined in different combinations to support integration and reduce the overall form factor. This presentation will discuss ST’s different options and describe when each combination would be most beneficial, with focus on stepper and BLDC motors.

You will learn:

  • About ST's portfolio of motor control devices
  • When to use a discrete or integrated solution
  • Available tools and ecosystem for motor control development

About motor control solutions from STMicroelectronics

In line with the environmental revolution, electric motor control is moving very quickly in the direction of higher efficiency for motors and drives. Moreover, an increased level of integration at the lowest cost is required to support market penetration of new technologies, as well as increased safety and reliability. Committed to electric motor control for more than 20 years, ST was among the first to recognize these trends.

ST is riding the winds of change with innovations in integrated intelligent power modules and systems-in-package, monolithic motor drivers, fast and efficient power switches, voltage-transient protected Triacs, and powerful and secure microcontrollers. Whichever motor technology you use, from traditional and rugged to the most modern and efficient, ST is able to supply the right electronic devices and a complete ecosystem with a range of evaluation boards, reference designs, firmware and development tools to simplify and accelerate design cycles.
