Implementing Motor Control using Simulink and NXP i.MX RT Crossover Processors
Daniel Popa, NXP
Peter Butko, NXP
This webinar will show how to design and implement motor control algorithms using Simulink, Embedded Coder, and NXP i.MX RT crossover MCUs. We will introduce Model-Based Design to develop embedded control algorithms and demonstrate an automated path to production implementation on the NXP i.MX RT1060 MCU.
Starting with Field Oriented Control (FOC) algorithms modeled in Simulink, NXP engineers will show how sensorless control of a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) is implemented. We will use Embedded Coder to generate optimized code from the Simulink model and deploy it to the NXP microcontroller. The code-generation workflow will feature the use of the NXP Model-Based Design Toolbox, which provides an integrated development environment and toolchain for configuring and generating all the necessary software to execute complex applications on NXP MCUs. In addition, Model-Based Design Toolbox includes a Simulink embedded target for NXP MCUs and peripheral device blocks and drivers.
