GUI Tool for EVKT-MP6570

Hi,
I bought an EVKT-MP6570 evaluation board but can’t find a suitable software to test this board. I spent an hour on the “eMotion Module Virtual Bench” software which could not connect before I realized that I needed an “eMotion Virtual Bench” software dedicated to the MP6570. I even tried “MotionLab” but without success.

Can you help me to find the file “eMotion Virtual Bench.zip” which is described in the user guide of “MP6570 Evaluation Kit (EVKT-MP6570)”.

Thank you.

Hi benoit.vincent,

Thanks for your question.
Yes, will look for it and update you.

Thanks,

Hi,

So it looks like the new software is called MotionLAB. Download it here: https://www.monolithicmotion.com/support/motion-software.html

Thank you for your response,

I already tried this software but it seems that there is no design file corresponding to my MP6570 eval card. And when I choose any other config file I have a “Communication failed” error message.

Where can I find a proper Design File for my MP6570 ? Or is there any possibility to have access to the old software which could be OK for me.

Regards
Benoit

Since I don’t have any software compatible with EVKT-MP6570 and the RS-485 adapter provided in the kit, I tried to communicate with the board using a µController and an i2c bus. I can read the status of the registers but I am unable to write because the board is configured to communicate in RS-485 and not i2c. I have not found any way to reconfigure the communication to i2c.
I am now completely stuck and I absolutely have to test driving a motor with your product.
How can I go forward?
