The X-CUBE-SPN11 is an expansion software for STM32Cube. The software runs on the STM32 Nucleo providing management of STSPIN230 to control low voltage three-phase brushless DC motors. The expansion is built on STM32Cube software technology to ease portability across different STM32 microcontrollers.
The software comes with a sample implementation driving a low voltage three-phase brushless DC motor, with BEMF sensing. It is preconfigured for a NUCLEO-F401RE board connected to an X-NUCLEO-IHM11M1 expansion board, but can be easily ported across different MCU families, thanks to STM32CUBE.
The package contains a user interface layer enabling real-time transmission of data to a PC through the terminal.
