Motor Control Tuning Demo using RL78

Last Updated: 06/25/2016


What does Renesas offer to help speed Motor control designs with the RL78 MCU?


Sensorless vector control typically requires considerable effort to tune the motor control code. Renesas is introducing a new motor control kit (YRMCKITRL78G14) that includes a test mode to ease the tuning process.
The kit uses Renesas low-power RL78 microcontroller and low voltage power MOSFETs. The RL78 microcontroller has DSP instructions and innovative peripherals such as Event Link Controller to implement advanced sensorless vector control while consuming just 144uA/MHz (CPU only).
