A comprehensive torque-, speed- and motion-control software solution was recently unveiled by Texas Instruments. The InstaSPIN-MOTION motor control solution boasts robust system performance and high efficiency for motor applications. It optimises complex motion sequences and reduces tuning to a single parameter, and tracks trajectories with a high level of accuracy across operating ranges for sensorless motor control.

Providing additional motor control functionality, InstaSPIN-MOTION enables more expertise on chip. Core algorithms embedded in the read-only-memory (ROM) on TI's 32bit C2000 Piccolo MCUs, InstaSPIN-MOTION integrates SpinTAC components from LineStream Technologies, featuring optimised motion profiling, single-parameter tuning and a disturbance-rejecting controller, to speed development and increase performance across changing speeds and loads. InstaSPIN-MOTION can be used with sensored feedback as well.

Available now today on production-ready, 90MHz, 32bit floating point Piccolo F2806xM MCUs starting at $10.22 USD per 10 Ku. A low-voltage, low-current motor control kit, DRV8312-69M-KIT, is available for $299, a low-voltage, high-current motor control kit (DRV8301-69M KIT) for $299 or high-voltage motor control kit, TMDSHVMTRINSPIN, for $699.
