Watch this 1-hour webinar where we examine the types of electric motors most frequently used in consumer and industrial applications, and describe the algorithms commonly applied to drive them. We then walk you through our development environment for STM32 motor control libraries along with simulation tools for multiphase motor drive modules.

The session also covers the broad STPower portfolio of power modules for line voltage-driven motors, with corresponding evaluation boards to facilitate testing and prototyping. Finally, you get a preview of new motor control products set for release in the year ahead.

You will learn:

  • Common electric motor types and how they differ from one another
  • The terminology used in electric motor control
  • About ST's rich motor control development environment
  • The evaluation tools available to aid in your motor control design
  • About the next generation of motor control products to be launched by STMicroelectronics

Giovanni Tomasello started at ST in 2006 as a product engineer for automotive and industrial IGBTs and has held several positions in marketing and applications. He was the application engineer responsible for the development of ST’s first Integrated Power Module in 2009, and since then has focused on high voltage applications. In 2016 he became the Motor Control Application Manager for ST America, and in 2019 he was promoted to team manager for the Power Discrete Group. Based in Schaumburg, IL, Giovanni earned a degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Catania (Italy) in 2006.

Jeff Halbig joined the ST marketing team in 2012 after 8 years of senior design experience in telecom and industrial DC/DC power supplies. He has held individual marketer and management roles for all ST power products, with a focus on power discrete technologies in industrial applications since 2015. Jeff Halbig graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology with both Bachelors and Masters of Engineering degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 2004.
