    Posted by on in DC Motor Controllers

    To experiment in implementing DC motor controllers with FPGAs and Microcontrollers I recently bought a 12V DC motor from eBay. Now, normally, one would have a target application in mind and peruse the motor's datasheet to see if the motor is fit for purpose.

    However, at this stage of my experiments with DC motors I am only interested in developing the electronics to drive a motor efficiently, as well as gather useful telemetry to send back to a host PC.

    Once this initial phase has been successfully achieved I will look at using DC motors in real-world applications like robotics and quadcopters. ...
