These introduction videos give background on TI Precision Labs and explain their broad appeal to engineers of all experience levels and introduce the three key motor types.
Brushless-DC motors are used to get massive benefits in terms of quietness, efficiency, and power delivery, but there are some hurdles that need to be overcome to get the motor to spin. This video series explains what a brushless-DC motor is, how it works, and how you would drive it.
Motor drivers have evolved over the years to integrate features that decrease component count, improve system protection, or boost motor performance. This video series goes into detail on key features integrated into motor drivers.
Motor drivers, like any other application-specific analog integrated circuit, have key design considerations. Knowing about these important topics can help you design a robust and efficient system. This video series discusses what key considerations you should take into account when designing your motor drive circuits.
While motor topologies have remained relatively unchanged over the past century, control techniques by comparison have experienced explosive growth. This has been driven in large part by technology advancements in the semiconductor industry. This seminar focuses specifically on advancements in the control of motors with an emphasis on field-oriented principles with brushless AC motors.
