Need a motor and controller recommendation

I previously used a TI LMxxxx processor for a stepper motor controller. One of the reasons for using a stepper was that I needed to know the position of the shaft at several places. The implementation tended to be on the slow side, but I never did optimize it.


Now I have a new requirement, but I only need to be able to stop it at the "home" position. Looking at the usual BLDC and PWM type controls, is there a way to stop the motor in a known position?

So, if I go back to a stepper type control, which processor would you recommend?


Note: Since this is a prototype design, a solution available in the FRDM format would be prefereable.
