New Delhi, India, 28 April 2014: As part of its growing development kit offering, element14 has partnered with Freescale to launch the MagniV S12ZVML-MINIBRD variable speed motor control development kit.


The new MagniV S12ZVML-MINIBRD provides a low cost and easy to use motor control evaluation and development platform.  The kit includes both the hardware and software needed to get a variable speed motor up and running quickly with the included software libraries and development tools.  The MagniV S12ZVML-MINIBRD is ideal for Sensorless BLDC or PMSM motor control as well as Bidirectional DC motors (H-Bridge).


The board was designed for engineers and hobbyists requiring a single board solution to drive low voltage variable speed BLDC/PMSM motors using Trapezoidal or Field Oriented Control.


S12ZVML-MINIBRD allows FOC and Trapazoidal Control and includes easy-to-use motor tuning software and libraries. The MagniV S12ZVML-MINIBRD features  S12ZVML128 and has 6 N-channel FETs with 5-8A drive capability. Among other key features are LIN connector and onboard BDM-to-USB debug interface.


David Shen, Group CTO at Premier Farnell, said: “In alignment with our strategic partnership, Freescale worked with us to produce and launch the MagniV S12ZVML-MINIBRD board through the manufacturing capabilities we are now able to offer through Embest, a wholly owned Premier Farnell subsidiary.”

“The Freescale MagniV is the latest in our ever-expanding range of solutions, offering everything from starter kits to complete development boards, including the newest releases and exclusive bundles,” adds Farnell.

The MagniV S12ZVML-MINIBRD costs $69 and is available from Newark element14 in North America, Farnell element14 in Europe and element14 in Asia Pacific.  Details on the development kit solutions are available on www.farnell.com.

Premier Farnell plc provides service distribution of technology products and solutions for electronic system design, production, maintenance and repair. It trades as Farnell element14 in Europe, Newark element14 in North America and element14 across Asia Pacific.

The group recorded a sales turn over £968m last year. Premier Farnell is supported by a global supply chain of more than 3,500 suppliers and an inventory profile developed to anticipate and meet its customers’ needs.
