MCU Motor Studio features a PC Tool and motor control firmware dedicated to the TXZ+™ Family Advanced Class microcontrollers from Toshiba.
The Current version supports M4K Group and M3H Group, and Toshiba plans to further expand the supported microcontroller.


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
