AC or DC electric motors with microcontroller-based drives are applied to a widening range of new products as they can provide precise torque, speed, and position control. Embed supports the full STMicroelectronics STM32 family of 32-bit microcontrollers based on the Arm ® Cortex ®-M processor which is designed to offer new degrees of freedom to MCU users.

With this webinar, attendees will:

  • How to develop and prototype STM32-based motor control firmware using the Altair Embed visual environment
  • Applying the Model Based Design (MBD) process to electric motor firmware development
  • An understanding of how to rapidly validate and test your system from concept to production

This webinar will include a live Q&A with the experts.
