The STM8/128-MCKIT starter kit is an integrated system designed to provide a complete, ready-to-use motor control application developed around the STMicroelectronics STM8 microcontroller. This starter kit is particularly suited to drive 3-phase brushless motors (either AC induction or permanent magnet types) and demonstrates how effectively the STM8 microcontrollers can be used in real-world motor control applications. However, the main advantage of the STM8/128-MCKIT is that you can use it to create your own applications and re-program the STM8 microcontroller. You can develop your own applications using the dedicated software libraries provided in the starter kit in conjunction with a third-party IDE and C compiler.
Motor drive based on scalar control (BLDC or ACIM) for three-phase motors
Position and/or speed measurement is implemented using Hall sensors or a tachometer.
The inverter is driven using the PWM modulation technique.
Acts as a plug-and play demo, out of the box, with the provided BLDC motor, in sensorless speed control mode
Operates with an AC induction motor, after reprogramming the microcontroller, in open loop or in speed control mode
