Old roadmap

Motion Control and FOC algorithm

  • Motor control: Low-side current sensing - No.1
  • Motor control: Inline current sensing with DMA - No.2
  • Motor control: High-side current sensing
  • Bugfix: Floating point angle overflow
  • Motor control: Inline current sensing
  • Motor control: Support for stepper motors
  • Motor control: Support for Hall sensor commutation
  • Motor control: Support for fully open-loop operation (no sensor)
  • Add support for acceleration ramping
  • Velocity Low pass filter
  • Timer interrupt execution rather than in the loop(): ❌ No real performance improvement
  • Sine wave lookup table implementation
  • Implement Space Vector Modulation method : Pure SVM
  • Implement Space Vector Modulation method : PWM SVM

MCU support
