Get Started with the S12ZVM-EFP 12 V Electrical Fuel Pump (EFP) Reference Design
Let's take your S12ZVM-EFP reference design board engineered for automotive 3-phase permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM)/brushless DC (BLDC) motor control system for a test drive!
1.1 Download the Quick Start Package for the S12ZVM-EFP reference design board
The Quick Start Package includes
1.2 Get your Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
S12ZVM-EFP performs better when using CodeWarrior® for MCUs (Eclipse IDE)
NOTE: Check the CodeWarrior page for the latest version.
1.3 Get the run-time debugging tool
S12ZVM-EFP performs better when using the FreeMASTER tool for run-time debugging.
NOTE: Check the FreeMASTER page for the latest version.
Plug it in
2.1 Connect the S12ZVM-EFP reference design board
Connect power supply cables and fuel pump or other 3 phase PMSM cables to the board.
2.2 Plug the PE Multilink debugger
Attach the PE Multilink debugger cable to BDM port (J1) onboard and another end to PC.
2.3 Plug the SCI to USB wire
Attach the SCI to USB wire (FreeMASTER) to UART port (J4) PIN2, PIN3 and PIN4, another end to the PC USB port.
2.4 Plug the DC Power Supply
Connect power supply wires to the DC power supply: set the voltage at 12 V, current limit to 20 A.
Check and make sure all connections are correct:
Build and load
3.1 Load example project using your IDE
Open CodeWarrior and load example projects.
3.2 Configure motor parameters in the debug tool
Open FreeMASTER run-time debug and visualization tool.
