The Infineon EVAL_IMD700A_FOC_3SH board, featuring a microcontroller, configurable gate driver, on-board power supplies and circuit protection functions, is capable of driving a motor rated for up to 300 W using sensorless field-oriented control (FOC). The EVAL_IMD700A_FOC_3SH is based on the MOTIX™ IMD701A fully programmable motor controller, which combines an XMC1404 MCU with a 6EDL7141 three-phase gate driver IC in a single package, driving 3 mm x 3 mm OptiMOS™ 6 40 V/1.5 mΩ external power MOSFETs.
The board supports the development of battery-operated products that use a brushless dc or permanent magnet synchronous motor. This motor controller solution is notable for its high efficiency, small size, and low component count.
The EVAL_IMD700A_FOC_3SH can operate independently or with an Infineon motor control GUI. It operates at up to 300 W with no heat-sink required.
