Spinning Three-Phase Brushless Motors (DRV8312-C2-KIT)

Watch Ryan Kehr, applications manager for TI's Motor Drive Business Unit, demonstrate the DRV8312-C2-KIT, a complete motor control evaluation kit for spinning brushless DC (BLDC) and permanent magnet synchronous (PMSM) motors out of the box. The DRV8312-C2-KIT speeds development of sub-50-V and 6.5-A brushless motors for driving medical pumps, gates, lifts and small pumps, as well as industrial and consumer robotics and automation. It includes the DRV8312 motor driver, a 32-bit C2000 Piccolo MCU controlCARD module, a quickstart GUI, full development source code, Code Composer Studio integrated development environment and a three-phase brushless DC motor.

Training:Telehealth - Trends, Challenges and Solutions

Telehealth enables independent elderly living, reduces healthcare cost and improves access to healthcare services. It has been gaining tremendous momentum in the recent years due to the ongoing policy and infrastructure changes. This session will present the overview of telehealth systems and relevant technologies. Specifically, we will look into the different components of a telehealth system design: processor, connectivity, power management and user interface. Solutions to enhance performance, improve connectivity, extends battery run time and enable rich user experience will be proposed.

Open Source Ultrasound Scan Conversion Demo on the OMAP3530 EVM
