Smart BLDC Commutator Coming Soon

I recently received a small batch of Smart BLDC Commutator boards to verify V3 routing. I'm pleased to announce that it tested flawlessly. I made a few changes to the silkscreen, including some equations to the back side to help in using motors with voltages outside the current design limits, and placed an order for a larger batch.

I expect boards to be in by the end of August 2014. After a quick overview to make sure all is well I will put them up for sale in the Makeatronics Store.

Once I get some time I will write up a detailed post on the hardware changes and the firmware running on it. Until then, here's the schematic if anybody wants to benefit from my experimenting.
