Let me quickly introduce the Kit DV164037 from Microchip, which contain an ICD3 programmer/debugger and the Explorer 16 Board. This kit is available from RS-Components through the article 687-2741 (Click here). 

Motor Drive Module

After the EDP Baseboard review, which is the Backplane of the EDP concept from RS, let me introduce the brushless motor drive module, which consist of 2 DSPIC33 to produce advance power control for 2 brushless motors.

Brushless Motors

Nowadays, most DC motors and few AC motors are « Brushless ». There are many advantages in using these motors, even if the control is more complicated than other, cause of the electronic command needed. This article will introduce the « Brushless motor ». At the menu, differents sorts of DC motors, why choose Brushless, type of Brushless motors,… Lire la suite »

Hall effect sensors

Hall effect sensors are used to sense magnetic field. In my previous job experience, I had the opportunity to use many of these sensors with brushless motor, in order to know the rotor position and to be able to switch windings correctly.   This article will introduce the hall effect, common type of sensors and… Lire la suite »

EDP Baseboard

This article will review the Baseboard of the EDP (Embedded Development Platform), which is a new product from RS Components. The business as usual of RS is to distribute electronics components and all that you can find around (Tests and Measurement, Tools, test boards, etc…). With this EDP platform, RS provide an independent system for… Lire la suite »
