Outline What You'll Learn
Motor Control for the Masses (56:32)
  • Millions of motors are used today in consumer and industrial products, and today's power and motor-control systems need to be more flexible and intelligent than ever before, especially when it comes to complying with trends in improving energy efficiency.
Motor Control Made Easy (55:53)
  • How Kinetis Motor Suite reduces your design time cycle with its simple to use interface and design methodology, increases your system performance, and reduces your support costs with Active Disturbance Rejections Control (ADRC).
Leveraging the ARM Cortex-M7 core for Motor Control Applications (43:51)
  • The opportunity to remotely monitor and manage countless motorized appliances in the home and beyond can now be realized from the comfort of our armchairs, workplaces or further afield. Learn why the latest member of the fast emerging Kinetis V series of ARM® Cortex®-M class MCUs, the Kinetis KV5x MCU family, is well equipped to handle the demands of connected multi-motor applications.

This training series has been designed to introduce you to the concepts of Field Oriented Motor (FOC) control, the Kinetis Motor Suite tool chain and the unique IP that is integrated into Kinetis Motor Suite, and how to leverage that IP to best effect.
