100W motor drive evaluation board with FOC sensorless control
The EVAL_100W_DRIVE_CFD2 motor drive board does not only offer a sensorless synchronous rectification BLDC/PMSM control algorithm to reduce reverse-current hard-commutation stress, but also gives the user the option to change switching frequency up to 20kHz and to choose between two-phase or three-phase modulation, which helps reduce switching losses.
Infineon's CoolMOS™ CFD series offers low on-resistance, as well as low capacitances and gate charge to minimize both conduction and switching losses. This enhances efficiency in hard-switching circuits, allowing BOM reduction due to reduced copper area and heatsink-free operation. In addition, optimized switching di/dt and dv/dt ensure low EMI to help further simplify circuit design and layout.
This board can be easily interfaced through XMC™ Link. XMC™ Link is an isolated debug probe for all XMC™ microcontrollers. The debug probe is based on SEGGER J-Link debug firmware, which enables use with DAVE™.
