About this Webinar

Many different control techniques, functions, and system capabilities may be required depending on the motor or motion control system you are trying to create.  A platform with the flexibility to experiment and then develop with all necessary components is rare. This session will explore Texas Instruments’ InstaSPIN three phase motor control solutions and in particular the low cost LaunchPad (controller) and BoosterPack (invert-er) ecosystem.  Using these tools sensor-less torque or velocity and encoder based sensor-ed velocity or servo position control applications can be evaluated and developed using your own three-phase motor.


Attend this live webinar for your chance to WIN a BOOSTXL-DRV8305EVM and LAUNCHXL-F28027F Boosterpack bundle!

During the presentation, Texas Instruments will share a link to a quiz around the webinar material. TI will be giving away a bundle to those chosen from those who answer the  quiz questions correctly within one week after the webinar. See the Terms and Conditions tab for more details!
