Product overview


The X-CUBE-SPN17 is an expansion software for STM32Cube. The software runs on the STM32 Nucleo providing management of STSPIN233 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 compatible with NUCLEO-F030R8, NUCLEO-F103RB, NUCLEO-F302R8 and NUCLEO-F401RE boards when connected to one or more X-NUCLEO-IHM17M1 expansion boards.

The package contains a user interface layer enabling real-time transmission of data to a PC through the terminal.
