ADI FMC Motor Drive System Introduction

Analog Devices uses six designations to inform our customers where a semiconductor product is in its life cycle. From emerging innovations to products which have been in production for twenty years, we understand that insight into life cycle status is important. Device life cycles are tracked on their individual product pages on, and should always be consulted before making any design decisions.

This particular articl/edocument/design has been retired or deprecated, which means it is no longer maintained or actively updated, even though the devices themselves may be Recommended for New Designs or in Production. This page is here for historical/reference purposes only.

The ADI FMC motor drive solution solution consist of the following products

  • AD-FMCMOTCON1-EBZ - Controller board. Compatible with all Xilinx FPGA platforms with FMC LPC or HPC connectors.
  • AD-DRVLV1-EBZ - Low voltage drive board. Connects to the Controller board and has a power stage that can drive drive Brushed DC / BLDC / PMSM / Stepper motors up to 48V and 18A.
  • AD-DYNO1-EBZ - Dynamometer drive system. Acts as an electronically adjustable load with two BLDC motors connected in a dyno setup.


  • Provide an efficient drive system for different types of electric motors
  • Address power and isolation challenges encountered in motor control applications
  • Provide accurate measurement of motor feedback signals
  • Achieve flexible control with FPGA/SoC interface
  • High speed industrial Ethernet interface
