    How to setup a Brushless Motor Project in DAVE4 ?

    I try to get a brushless motor with hall sensors to work.
    I use the EVAL-M1-05F804 Evaluation Board and the EVAL-M1-1302 Evaluation Board.
    Connected to these is a 24V brushless motor with hall sensors.
    The motor is not moving at all.

    What apps do I need to get this to work?
    Currently I have these:

    I tried to start it before entering the while(1) loop without success:
    But I don't think this is neccessary because it is already set in the PWM_BC Configuration dialogs.
    As far as I can see there is no "inverter enable" signal on the driver board, so this is probably not the problem.

    What am I missing?
    I can't find any example how to do this in DAVE4.
    Is there any step-by-step guide howto setup such an application?
    I tried the "BLDC_SCALAR_HALL_XMC13" example, but can't get it to work and it does not use the DAVE APPs so I don't know what the APPs do on their own and what code I have to write manually.

    Any advice is welcome!

    Best regards

    BLDC Example Code

    Hello Tom,

    I recommend to use the example Code:

    It has also a documentation:

    Unfortunately we don't support the BLDC_SCALAR APP anymore.

    The BC APP was a lower APP for the BLDC_SCALAR APP.
    It is only able to produce the PWM pattern. But the control is missing.

    Best Regards
