The X-NUCLEO-IHM11M1 is a low-voltage 3-phase brushless DC motor driver expansion board for STM32 Nucleo based on the STSPIN230. It provides an affordable and easy-to-use solution for the implementation of portable motor driving applications such as thermal printers, robotics and toys. The X-NUCLEO-IHM11M1 is compatible with the Arduino UNO R3 connector and most STM32 Nucleo boards. The board is designed for 6-step and FOC algorithms.
The latest addition to ST’s family of tiny, low-voltage, energy-efficient motor drivers for battery-powered portable and wearable applications, the STSPIN250 integrates a full MOSFET bridge and fixed off-time PWM current controller in a tiny 3 x 3 mm QFN package. It operates from a supply voltage as low as 1.8 V and enables power savings thanks to the best-in-class standby current consumption of less than 80 nA. The high output current capability allows use in low- to medium-power applications.
Designed around the STSPIN250, the STM32 Nucleo low-voltage brush DC motor driver expansion board (X-NUCLEO-IHM13A1) provides an affordable and easy-to-use solution for implementing motor control designs in portable applications such as POS terminals, printers, small robots and toys. Used together with the STM32Cube expansion software package (X-CUBE-SPN13), you can make the motor in your own project spin in minutes.
The STEVAL-3DP001V1 is a complete solution for driving all 3D printers including Delta models requiring more complex computation. Ideal for both beginners and experienced users, this autonomous solution can be used with a software interface or with custom firmware. Designed to drive 3D printers providing several axes (6 motors), several extruders (1 to 3), and multi-zone heating beds (1 to 3), it features integrated Wi-Fi connectivity for use with a smart device.
On a single page, developers can now find all the STM32-based design resources to get their motor control and drive projects off to a quick start: Software Development Kit, firmware, motor control kits, evaluation boards and related documentation. Specifically targeting field-oriented control (FOC) algorithms for Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSM), these resources will help you get your motor control design quickly up and spinning.
This blog post details, with the help of a video, this new generation STSPIN BLDC driver IC that embeds an STM32 32-bit microcontroller along with a triple half-bridge gate driver to drive the power stage.
