The motor control industry has been focusing on designing low-cost motor control drives for various applications. The consumer demand for low-cost motor control applications is driving this trend.

Microchip has recently introduced the PIC32MM family of microcontrollers, which is capable of addressing the low-cost motor control requirements. The low-cost solution benefits from the capability of the Multiple Capture/Compare/PWM (MCCP) module available in Microchip’s PIC32MM controllers. This document
illustrates the usage of the MCCP module in the PIC32MM0064GPL036 controller, from Microchip Technology, to deliver a development platform for motor drive applications.

MCCP implementation, similar to the motor control solution discussed in this document, can also be extended to Microchip’s PIC24 and dsPIC33 family of devices which feature MCCP.
