Motor Control and Drive Design Solutions These software plug-in tools included with MPLAB X IDE assist with the development of motor control applications: ■ Data Monitor and Control Interface (DMCI): Provides a customizable GUI to input and adjust software motor parameters using sliders and switches. Four customizable output plots can be used to show a graphical history of control variables so that the motor dynamic response can by analyzed. This tool is useful for tweaking software parameters and visualizing historical data during debug sessions. Most motor control application note software comes with a setup fi le to automatically confi gure DMCI for the application. ■ Real-Time Data Monitor (RTDM): Make a change to a software parameter and see the effect immediately without stopping the motor. A serial USB or UART cable supports bi-directional data transfers between the host PC and the MCU/DSC. This is confi gured within DMCI and most motor control application note software comes with a setup fi le to automatically confi gure RTDM for the application. Motor Control Tuning GUIs
