NXP® Freedom Development Platform for Low-Voltage, 3-Phase BLDC Motor Control

The FRDM-MC-LVBLDC low-voltage, 3-phase Brushless DC (BLDC) Freedom development board platform adds BLDC motor control capabilities, such as rotational or linear motion, to your design applications.

This evaluation board, in a shield form factor, when combined with NXPs Brushless DC Motor Control Reference Software effectively turns the Freedom development board platform into a complete motor control reference design, compatible with existing Freedom development platforms, FRDM-KV31F and FRDM-KV10Z.
