Is there any explanation of how the current profile lookup table works that someone could point me towards? I have read the entire datasheet 1.5 times ;) It gives no hint as to what values to fill the registers with. Thanks

If anyone else is interested, the full diagram for fig 2 is Fig 7 in the L9942 data sheet at http://www.st.com/internet/com/TECHNICAL_RESOURCES/TECHNICAL_LITERATURE/DATASHEET/CD00072898.pdf

Nice article, but would it be possible to put in a link to the full figure 2 diagram...the 2 parts are different scales and not easy to stitch together.

A very informative article . The graphics are superb. I believe this back EMF is also used in brush less DC motors in a sensor less commutation control.

A good article with nice details! Thanks. I really liked the graphics and the text overlays that expand upon what we are seeing. It looks like a rational approach that is both economical and well thought out. I wonder now how I can use this in other applications..
