Motor control solutions are increasing across smart, multifunctional, and integrated devices both for industrial and automotive applications. This demand is prompting design engineers to look for microcontrollers that help them with design simplification while improving manufacturing efficiency and Bill of Materials.

Actuators are a critical element in motor control, tying a control system to its environment moving the mechanism. Electric actuators are having the highest growth (especially in automotive applications) as they are environment-friendly and safer to use than the other actuators.

This webinar will guide you step-by-step on how to get a motor to spin using NXP S12ZVMA MagniV® MCUs and to develop a LIN-based application. The S12ZVM MCUs offers the most scalable family of integrated solutions for BLDC motors, DC motors, and other actuators in combination with CAN-, LIN-, or PWM-communication support.
