This reference design demonstrates a motor control solution for spinning three-phase brushless DC (BLDC) and brushless AC (BLAC) - often referred to as “permanent magnet synchronous (PMSM)” - motors featuring the C2000™ Piccolo™ microcontroller enabled with InstaSPIN-FOC and InstaSPIN-MOTION in ROM and the DRV8301 three-phase motor driver. It provides three half-bridge drivers, each capable of driving two N-type MOSFETs, one for the high side and one for the low side. It supports up to 2.3A sink and 1.7A source peak current capability and only needs a single power supply with a wide range from 6V to 60V. The reference design features a high-performance, power-efficient, cost-effective platform that speeds development for quicker time to market. Applications include CPAP and pumps, e-bikes, e-scooters, medical pumps and drills, power tools, and robotics. This reference design is based on the DRV8301 evaluation kit.

  • Operating supply voltage 6V-60V
  • 2.3A sink and 1.7A source gate drive current capability
  • Integrated dual-shunt current amplifiers with adjustable gain and offset
  • Integrated buck converter to support up to 1.5A external load
  • Isolated SPI and CAN interfaces
  • Fully-functional evaluation board includes software, hardware design files, quick start graphical interface, and step-by-step documentation

NOTE: Software for this board can be found inside the controlSUITE™ software package. Download controlSUITE at Once installed, navigate to "DRV830x-69M-Kit High Current 3PH BLDC/PMSM with InstaSPIN-FOC and InstaSPIN-MOTION" under Development Tools -> Motor.
