dsPICDEM™ MCLV-2 Development Board (Low Voltage)

dsPICDEM™ MCLV-2 Development Board


This board provides a cost-effective method for evaluating and developing sensored or sensorless brushless DC (BLDC) and permanent magnet synchronous motor control applications. This board is controlled by a 16-bit digital signal controller (dsPIC®) or 32-bit microcontroller (PIC32). These controllers are mounted on a plug-in module daughter board (plug-in modules sold separately).

This board requires an external programmer/debugger (e.g., MPLAB® ICD 4).
