Technosoft S.A. has announced a new family of DSP motor control kits based on the TMS320F28335 floating-point digital signal controller (DSC). The MxK28335 kits offer a wide range of tools for the design of DSP-based motor control applications. The kits have a modular structure, which enables the upgrade of a simpler kit to a more powerful one by adding new software/hardware modules.

To quickly develop and test motion control algorithms, the MSK28335 DSC boards use the 150 MIPS computational power of the TMS320F28335, combined with a double-event manager able to drive up to 18 PWM and 16 ADCs. The embedded CAN interface may be used to connect the board to multiple-axis structures. The kits can be connected to a PC via an RS232 interface to download, execute and debug the software applications without the need of other hardware devices.

The basic MSK28335 kits are designed for users who already have the power module and motor, and want to develop their motion control software application for educational purposes. These kits allow for quick debugging and implementation of the program, and evaluation of the DSC.

The MCK28335 kits are complete development platforms that come with a power module and a brushless or an induction motor, making them suitable for digital motion control designs.

Two ready-to-run speed control demos (PMSM & BLDC) will let you start evaluating the motor control using graphical motion analysis, system tuning and different speed reference profiles. They include motion demos, as well as graphical analysis and controller tuning tools. Users have a complete hardware structure for the development of their motion control application. With these kits it is easy to learn F28335 programming using ready-to-run examples with source code and an advanced GUI.

The most sophisticated MCK28335 professional kits also include application examples (in source code) for the control of either brushless or induction motors, and Matlab function libraries, which are Simulink models for the PMSM or induction motor position/speed control.
