Get Your Motor Runnin’

Thing Power and LaunchPad Motor Control

Late fall doldrums got you down? Looking for a new project to break up the longer, darker nights? Dreaming of a motor control design for the holidays? Never fear! Fish Fry is here to help!

First up, we spin our motors on over to LaunchPad land with Chris Clearman from Texas Instruments, to check out a brand new motor control evaluation kit. And, what if your new motor control design didn’t just consume energy (yawn – how old school), but it also produced it? Well, it could if MicroGEN Systems has anything to say about it. Straight off a win at this year’s MEMS Executive Congress Technology Showcase, Robert Andosca (President/CEO – MicroGEN Systems) is here to talk to us about Thing Power – a whole new way to harvest energy.
