Cerebot MC7: Advanced Motor Control Board (RETIRED)

This products is retired and no longer for sale in our store.

Product Description

The Cerebot MC7 board is a microcontroller development board based on a Microchip® dsPIC 16-bit Digital Signal Controller. 

The Cerebot MC7 is primarily intended to be used as a controller for electro-mechanical devices such as DC motors. The microcontroller used, a dsPIC33FJ128MC706A, is a member of a dsPIC family optimized for motor control applications. 

The Cerebot MC7 provides four half-bridge circuits that are rated for 24V at up to 5A. Each of these half-bridge circuits is connected to the dsPIC A/D converter to measure voltage and current for closed loop feedback control. These half-bridges can be used to control two brushed DC motors, two bi-polar stepper motors, one brushless DC motor, one uni-polar stepper motor. In addition, the board can be used to implement controllers for switched DC-DC converters. 

The Cerebot MC7 works with the Microchip MPLAB® development environment and provides built in programming and debugging support within the MPLAB IDE.
