I recently bought an NXP development kit for BLDC motor control. The kit includes the following NXP parts
- FRDM-KV31F MCU development board
- FRDM-MC-LVBLDC motor interface shield
- FRDM-MC-LVMTR motor
My objective is to test and evaluate NXP’s BLDC motor controller solution with the end goal of integrating it into a custom product for my Terra customer if it proves successful.
To help me become familiar with the NXP BLDC solution, I am using NXP “Kinetis Motor Suite v1.2.0 Lab Guide” (document # KMSLG) and followed the directions for setting up the software environment and hardware configuration.
I tried running Lab #1 in the user guide and the motor will simply not run as fault conditions exist. The error messages I got from the KMS GUI included incorrect DC bus levels and the CPU resetting – see attached files.
Being knew to NXP’s motor control products, It is hard for me to tell whether I have defective hardware or I have incorrectly set up the software/hardware. I really need to talk to someone familiar with this product so we can determine what the issue is.
