Evaluation kit cuts motor control prototyping time

The YROTATE-IT-S5D9 kit from Renesas is for controlling three-phase permanent magnet motors. It considerably reduces the time required for prototyping and thus the development process. The kit is based on the Renesas Synergy 32bit MCU S5D9 and is now available from Rutronik UK.

The kit is able to manage brushless DC motors up to 48V, and up to 5A peak.

In addition to the basic motor control options such as start, stop, speed and direction, it offers a whole range of analysis options: Speed, currents, voltages, torque and other intrinsic parameters can be evaluated via an intuitive PC GUI.

The YROTATE Kit has a small memory footprint.

Its floating point unit (FPU) enables easy and fast optimised execution of any theoretical models developed on PC simulation tools.

The FPU ensures that no time is wasted in scaling or overflow management.

In addition to a USB connection, the kit has an RS-485 and a CAN interface and can also be connected wirelessly via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

An integrated J-Link debugger enables full debugging.
