Step 1: Hardware configuration
One of the very important features of the Arduino SimpleFOCShield is the hardware configuration.
Each board has a set of solder pads on the bottom side which are used for configuration. These solder pads enable board to:
- Enable / Disable pull-up resistors for encoder A,B and Index channel
- Configure BLDC driver pinout (PWM pins A,B,C and enable pin)
Step 2: Connecting the hardware
Connecting the Arduino SimpleFOCShield to the microcontroller, BLDC motor, power-supply and the sensors is very straight forward.
