Advanced Motor Drive Controller (AMDC) Hardware
AMDC is a platform that provides relevent interfaces which can be used to control power electronics. The AMDC hardware is a PCB that serves as a carrier card for a PicoZed SoM.
The provided interfaces include:
- 48 digital output channels (able to provide PWM signals for 8 three phase, two level inverters)
- 16 analog input channels (+- 15V differential input)
- 24 channel general purpose I/O
- Quadrature encoder input
This project originated as Nathan Petersen's Independent Study project during Spring 2018, advised by Prof. Eric Severson. It is now actively maintained by the Severson Research Group as a hardware platform for the AMDC system. Open source firmware is forthcoming.
