Brushless DC Motor Kit

  • Overview

Renesas Brushless DC Motor Kit (YMCRPR8C25)

The Renesas BLDC (Brushless DC) Motor Control evaluation platform is a ready-to-use BLDC Motor Control solution with industry-quality hardware and software for quick deployment in cost-sensitive applications. The Kit offers developers a vehicle to evaluate and adopt a low cost BLDC Motor Control solution into their products using Renesas R8C/Tiny family of microcontrollers. The kit includes a BLDC Motor Control Hardware Platform, 24V BLDC Motor, Graphical Users Interface (GUI) PC Application for Microsoft Windows®, BLDC Motor Control Software Algorithms and documentation. From beginners to advanced users of BLDC Motors, the kit provides an easy path for turning your ideas into action. The built in BLDC Motor Control GUI PC Application offers users flexibility and ease of use when controlling and understanding the BLDC Motor operation.
