All-in-one online tool simplifies motor-control designs

The new tool features tutorials and documentation, store project setups (HW and SW), links to download software solutions including the newly updated X-CUBE-MCSDK package, and buy evaluation hardware online.

A generic search tool or adaptive front end that filters relevant content based on the project description. Documents and videos can be previewed and saved in a personalized bundle to download in compressed .zip format.

Setups can be created to select and save items to start projects, including software and applicable evaluation boards (control and power), motor-control kits, and inverters that can be purchased online. Supporting documentation can be downloaded directly or added to a personalized information bundle. Multiple setups can be saved to compare different approaches for each project or manage several projects simultaneously.

The X-CUBE-MCSDK motor-control software development kit contains firmware libraries and the STM32 Motor Control Workbench graphical configurator. Version 5.3 adds support for the STM32G0 microcontroller series and includes the FreeRTOS real-time operating system. Updates to STM32 Motor Control Workbench allow direct access to firmware examples and Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) and Low Layer (LL) APIs.

ST-MC-SUITE is initially focused on BLDC (Brushless DC motor) and PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) designs using Field-Oriented Control (FOC). Support for extra motor types and control techniques will follow later this year.
