MCU Motor Studio is a software composed of Toshiba TXZ+™ Advanced Class Microcontroller dedicated motor control PC tool and motor control firmware. We have added support for a new position estimation control that simplifies the adjustment during the evaluation of Field Oriented Control motors.


The PC Tool allows motor parameter configuration, drive control, real-time logging and diagnostics via high-speed UART. The motor control firmware is scalable, fully configurable and supports the special motor functions of the Family Advanced Class TXZ+™ M4K Group and M3H Group. MCU Motor Studio together with the Clicker 4 MCU board and the Clicker 4 Inverter Shield from MikroElektronika (MIKROE) allows quick and easy MCU evaluation, BLDC motor application development and prototyping.


  • Achieve the highest efficiency by  Field Oriented Control (Vector Control)
  • Quick start-up and configuration of BLDC motors
  • Performance tuning by real-time data logging & diagnostics
  • 1-shunt & sensorless options can lead to system cost reductions
  • Scalable firmware, easy to adapt to Toshiba motor MCUs and boards

Motor Parameter Tuning Tool

Motor Tuning Studio Ver. 1.0

is an easy-to-use, all-in-one profiling and parameter optimization solution featuring firmware and a PC-based tool. It allows for automatic motor parameter measurement such as phase resistance, phase inductance, moment of inertia, as well as automatic tuning and optimization of the proportional-integral regulator gains for speed, current, and position.

  • Easily derive initial parameters from the motor and start the evaluation(*)
    * If you wish to use the tool, please contact your sales representative.
