ARM and RS are recruiting for internships to support the RS programme.
The reference designs will be featured on the distributor’s design website, called DesignSpark.
Both are ready to use and can be adapted to suit specific project requirements.
“The objective of our programme is to give developers a head start with common requirements,” said Mark Cundle, technical marketing manager, RS Components.
A motor control reference design demonstrates how to control motors using the RS-EDP-AM-MC1 motor control modules and provide feedback with quadrature encoders, and inertial sensors such as gyroscopes and accelerometers to perform dead reckoning.
It allows feedback from sensors to be used for position control, orientation data to be logged, providing the capability for autonomous control.
“In both these designs, the designers were able to use EDP hardware modules and software from the mbed library to reach a complete, working and verified
design quickly,” said Chris Styles, senior application engineer at ARM.
The process and the completed design are available on the mbed and DesignSpark websites.
