Features & Applications

The DM183021 PICDEM MC LV Development Board provides a cost-effective method of evaluating and developing sensored or sensorless brushless DC (BLDC) motor control applications. The board supports Microchip’s 28-pin, PIC18F microcontrollers and dsPIC30F Digital Signal Controllers. The board is capable of controlling motors rated up to 48V and 2.2 Amps.

The development board also comes with two pre-programmed, Flash-based devices for easy development: the PIC18F2431 device will populate the 28-pin socket and the dsPIC30F3010 will ship in a separate sample box. Additionally, the board comes with a free Motor Control Graphical User Interface (MC-GUI) which can set and modify all motor parameters. Custom programming and in-circuit debugging are facilitated with the ICD connector for Microchip’s MPLAB® ICD 2 In-Circuit Debugger, DV164004.
