    Apply for iMOTION™ Motor Drive Design Kit and Prove You Can Spin A Motor in an Hour

    rscasny

      The Infineon iMOTION™ Modular Application Design Kit Roadtest enrollment period is nearly completed.

       

      I'd like to get a few more applicants.

       

      What's  iMOTION™, you ask?

       

      iMOTION™ is a family of highly integrated products for the control of a variable speed drive. By integrating both the required hardware and software to perform sensor less control of a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) they provide the highest energy efficient appliance motor system with the lowest system cost.

       

      Here's the page that describes it:

      Here's the getting started guide:

      It uses a Motor Control Engine Designer to speed up development. You put in the parameters and the designer spits out the code, so to speak. (Yes, I'm oversimplifying.)

       

      The company claims you can spin a motor in 1 hour. I'd like a few more eager roadtesters who would like to prove it.
