I'm working on a small project of mine and I need to implement a motor driver in order to control a 3 phase Brushless DC motor.
By googling, I've read that I need a High and Low side driver to control the couple of NMOS used the generate on of the phases.
Can I just connect the pins of my μC directly to the MOSFETs and just enable and disable it via software?
Could you explain me why do I need such a piece of hardware?
I've seen the L6234 Three phase motor driver from ST, and they use some logic ports to manage the enable/disable of the inputs.
Thank you in advance!
