DRV8312-C2-KIT is a DIMM100 controlCARD based motherboard evaluation module.  The DRV8312-C2-KIT is a motor control evaluation kit for spinning three-phase brushless DC (BLDC) and brushless AC (BLAC) - often referred to as permanent magnet synchronous (PMSM) - motors. The DRV8312-C2-KIT is a high-performance, power-efficient, cost-effective sensorless field-oriented control (FOC) and sensored/sensorless trapezoidal commutation platform that speeds development for quicker time to market.
