New Motor Controller

This is a Dev kit from ST that is a complete Motor Controller in ESC format with 3 current sensors, 3 BEMF, 3 discrete Gate Drivers, Hall sensors, temperature sensors and 28V@120A Solution. The MOSFETS are rated at 120A with 480A pulse, but heat dissipation causes them to be limited to max 40A with hard…

This will be a named component that is implemented manually allowing…
