A new motordriver

Can’t build a new boat without also upgrading the electronics. We’ve custom designed a brand new BLDC motordriver to be used in the boat. The motordriver is still in production, but we couldn’t resist to already publish some information on our website. Just like our previous designs all knowledge and designs will be completely open source ! Please visit the dedicated webpage Motordriver

Special thanks to AltiumWürth Elektronik and Eurocircuits for their generosity in realizing this project!
