Motor controllers for cheap robots

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

An instructables on motor controllers for cheap robots  by JayWeeks Almost every robot needs to power a motor of some sort or another. Problem is that motors take quite a lot of power, compared to what most microcontrollers operate with. To solve this problem, robots use what is called a...

Sensorless Brushless DC Motor Drive with MSP430

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

A booster board for the MSP430 LaunchPad controls brushless DC motors with or without sensors. A bunch of double NPN transistor MBT2222AD ICs drive the motors: I thought that I would share my project on the forum. I call it BLDC Booster. It is a booster pack for the MSP430...

10-A H-Bridge motor controller

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Chris from PyroElectro has posted his plans for a 10-A H-Bridge motor controller that avoids using the the typical controller ICs. He writes: Motor control is the core heart of robotics. Without locomotion or any movement a robot is dull and lifeless. The H-bridge is a tried and true concept...
