I wanted to try out VESC for a sensorless application and designed this:
This uses TO220 Mosfets - 150V and 20A.
This has no step down from Vmotor to 12V, since I figured it would be cheaper to mount an external buck to do that job.
I do not intend for this to be very high performance, but possibly good enough to get a motor spinning.The gate drivers are IR2113S (since I had a lot of those with me).
Can the experienced members please review my design ? This is based on the 'Mini' open source PCB design.
Current state: I have a windows based machine and mostly use Keil to program ST based MCUs in the past, I have no clue as to how to get the firmware on the board and communicate with it. I tried uploading the pre compiled firmware, but the VESC tool's utility does not detect any VESC. Kindly suggest how to proceed from there.
