    This shield work as I think before.

    Load example and connect motor,battery the gear turn on.

    Specifications were sufficient to design with

    8

    Look the features and specs below picture.

    There are two points that can be improved.

    1. Voltage and current

    For most small DC motors it is enough.

    But when we need control 48V motor it will not support.

    2. PWM channel

    This chip have three PWM channel and can be setting to control all 12 output.

    Three is enough for 3-axis control but if we want more it will not support.

    Demo Software was of good quality

    The quality of example code is high. Every line have comment at the end.

    ================================================================================================

    ================================================================================================

    Demo was easy to use

    7

    Although example code quality is high it only show how to control single-phase Induction Motors or LED.

    Hope Infineon can update example for stepped motor and BLDC.

    Support materials were available

    I saw some tester has problem with XMC1100 boot-kit. I am very lucky without problem.

    ================================================================================================

    ================================================================================================

    The price to performance ratio was good

    5

    The invoice show both two boards is 50 USD. I don't know why it is so expensive.

    I check with Infineon's web the chip is around 6 USD and add all component I guess it does not exceed 25 USD.

    There have some mistake with the price.
