User-friendly motor control development environment to shorten time to the market.

Renesas Motor Solutions

Renesas provides motor control solutions to support the entire development process: devices that are particularly suitable for motor control, a motor control kit that can be used as a reference design, and complete software and tools.

Motor Control Evaluation System

Renesas high-performance MCU and A&P devices are ideally suited for motor control applications. Reference boards mounted with the inverter circuitry necessary for driving the motor and various sample code and application notes are ready to use. Complete motor control evaluation and development tools help reduce time to market, and they are ideal for the following purposes:

  1. Evaluation of Renesas devices (microcontrollers (MCUs), A&P products)
  2. Reference for board and software design
  3. Learning about motor control

Renesas Motor Workbench 2.0: Motor Control Development Tool 2.0

Using the 24V Motor Control Evaluation System for RX23T, Renesas Motor Workbench can display waveforms of the internal variables of the microcontroller in real time and automatically extract vector control parameters. To download Renesas Motor Workbench, please sign in or register for a My Renesas account.

Renesas Motor Workbench is updated to 2.0.

With this update, high-speed communication of ICS++ (In Circuit Scope plus) by Desk Top Laboratories Inc. has been supported, and functions and usability have been improved.
It greatly contributes to improvement of debugging efficiency in the user system.

Motor control development tool

Feature

Analyzer

Math function
 Added Math function to calculate the waveform to the real time waveform display.
 It can perform arithmetic operations, trigonometric functions, and arithmetic of waveforms.
 Also, it is possible to display only the arithmetic expression.
 It is effective for checking the deviation and displaying the model formula.

Display of average value
 The display of the average value was added to each channel of the waveform display.

Expand waveform display candidate channel number to 32
 The number of variables that can be set as waveform display candidates has been expanded to 32.
 Since it is possible to select the variable you want to check from the preset maximum of 32 variables according to the application, it is easy to switch the variable to display the waveform.

Alias definition of variable name
 Added a function to define an alias as a display name to be used in RMW as a variable.
 It defines aliases for variables with long names, variable names difficult to understand meanings, and so on.
 It is also useful when operating by development members other than software developers.

Status Indicator
 This function changes the color of the status lamp and displays the status name when the variable value matches the set condition.
 It is a convenient function for mode transition confirmation and error cause display.

Scope Capture & Image Editor
 A function to capture the waveform display screen and an editor function to insert a textbox and a markup balloon have been added.
 It is a convenient function when saving measured waveforms, comparing, and creating reports.

Tuner

Reduce input parameters to two
 The input parameter of Auto-adjust parameters has been reduced to 2, rated current and number of pole pairs.

Scope & Memory
 Added the function to display waveform after Auto-adjust parameters.
 Up to three waveforms can be stored in the GUI, so comparison can be done easily.

Skip
 It inputs a known parameter and omits the identification of the entered parameter.
