This webinar shows how to use Simulink, the new Motor Control Blockset, and the Embedded Coder to generate C code from motor control algorithms and deploy them to Microchip’s dsPIC digital signal controllers (DSCs) , PIC32 and SAM microcontrollers (MCUs).  Starting with a sensorless Field-Oriented Control (FoC) algorithm modeled in the Motor Control Blockset, we will use the Embedded Coder to generate optimized code for a Microchip motor control device.  The code generation workflow will feature the use of the MPLAB Device Blocks for Simulink, which provides an integrated development environment and toolchain for configuring and generating all the necessary software to execute complex applications on Microchip MCUs and DSCs.  In addition, MPLAB Device Blocks for Simulink includes a Simulink embedded target for Microchip devices with peripheral device blocks and drivers.


  • Simulating sensorless Field Oriented Control (FOC) algorithms in Simulink and using the Motor Control Blockset
  • Generating optimized, production ready code with the Embedded Coder
  • Deploying code to Microchip’s dsPIC DSCs, PIC32 and SAM MCUs using MPLAB Device Blocks for Simulink

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
