Unformatted text preview: measure the RPM of the motor. Measuring the BEMF voltage while reading the digital tachometer will give a correlation between motor speed and BEMF voltage. Note: Microchip Application Note AN893 provides firmware and circuit examples for reading the BEMF voltage using a PIC16F684. DS00905B-page 6 2010 Microchip Technology Inc. AN905 CONCLUSION Brushed DC motors are very simple to use and control, which makes them a short design-in item. PIC microcontrollers, especially those with CCP or ECCP modules, are ideally suited for driving BDC motors. REFERENCES AN893, “Low-Cost Bidirectional Brushed DC Motor Control Using the PIC16F684“.
