Electric Drives Demonstration Platform (EDDP) Motor Control Kit



The kit enables development and evaluation of 3-phase motor control applications by providing all the necessary software and hardware components. The main hardware components of the kit are the TEC0053 from Trenz Electronic GmbH as the motor driver board, the Arty Z7-10 from Digilent Inc. as the reference controller board and a BLDC motor from Anaheim Automation as the reference motor. The main software components are the Field Control Algorithm implemented with Vivado SDSoC and the Web UI; the software has to be downloaded from trenz.org/EDDP/.

Other assembly options for cost or performance optimization plus high volume prices available on request.

All modules produced by Trenz Electronic are developed and manufactured in Germany.
