SINE/COSINE Encoder Support

SINE/COSINE Encoders are seen in higher powered PMAC motors like the Motoenergy ME1304. These encoders take the place of hall effect sensors. This feature would be helpful in high power VESC designs like the BESC which would be very useful to drive such large PMAC motors.

Hi Shaman,

you can follow this pull request:
https://github.com/vedderb/bldc/pull/81

 

If you beat me to testing it with a motor let me know, maybe I can help setting up the bench. In my hardware both analog throttle inputs are protected and buffered, but I guess for very light testing its okay to run an ADC pin that close to the motor (its probably not okay).

 

Cheers

I saw that too. I've been following marcos and team's controller development. I was really glad to see this!
