Motor driver Shield drives 3-phase electric motors with a variety of different features
BLDC Shield for Arduino with TLE9879QXA40 is designed to drive BLDC motors in combination with an Arduino compatible baseboard. The Shield is flashed with several motor control algorithms (sensorless FOC, Back EMF, hall sensor based block commutation), and it is controlled from the baseboard via SPI. Additionally, it has a 3x2 pin strip to easily connect the Hall pins of an electric motor. It also allows the user to easily change the motor parameters of the motor control algorithms. The whole dataset of parameters can also be saved and loaded from the flash memory of the Shield or written and read from the Arduino. Besides, the Shield has an RGB LED, which can be controlled by the user. Lastly, NANOTEC DB42S03 and Trinamic QBL4208-41-04-006 motors are recommended for our Arduino Shield.
The stackable active BLDC Shield can be used in a wide spectrum of applications such as 3D-printer, multi-axis CNC-milling machines, construction robot arms, multi-copter and other RC applications, side-mirrors, HVAC-flaps, right-regulation, wiper and seat control.
Our BLDC Shield for Arduino has library which includes a collection of code that makes it easy for you to run your project. Please see the following steps for adding a .zip library below:
- Step 1: Install the Arduino Desktop IDE and open it
- Step 2: Go to Sketch -> Include Library -> Add .ZIP Library
- Step 3: Go to 01_arduino_library and select the archive ‘BLDC_Arduino_library. zip’
- The library is now available in your IDE.
Additional Tools for Design-in
Embedded Power ICs provide a built-in boot strap loader (BSL) for programming the system-on-chip devices over the built-in LIN transceiver or UART. The uIO Stick acts as an interface between the TLE98xx device and a PC. It handles the BSL protocols as well as the physical layers. A PC application (uIO BSL Tool) provides access to all BSL functions of the Embedded Power device.
The Micro Inspector (Pro) is a graphical visualization tool for embedded software based on Arm® Cortex®-M cores. It provides a simple & clean GUI where only relevant buttons & tabs are displayed. No programming knowledge is required. It provides a possibility to read & write the memory of embedded target processor during run time and offers a set of tool features (indicators & virtual controls) on graphical dashboards, which can be mapped to the memory locations.
Micro Inspector with a read-only view is free of charge and can be downloaded via the Infineon Toolbox.
Micro Inspector Pro offers the option to save your own dashboards. This version can be requested via our TAC and comes with a yearly fee of 399€/license.
- The Power Dissipation Tool is an interface that helps you estimate the power dissipation and the temperature of the chip. It is available for the whole Embedded Power IC family.
- The Power Dissipation Tool can be installed via the Infineon Toolbox. If you don`t have the Infineon Toolbox yet, please go to Infineon Toolbox and enjoy the release management for updates
IHR and Vector are proven partners for drivers and driver configuration tools compatible with Infineon´s range of Embedded Power ICs, and support LIN specifications 1.3, 2.0 and 2.1. The offered solution provides a wide range of options for designers, with reliable testing specifications, intuitive operation, and diagnostic services.
Automotive Motor Control – Understandable
