2. Why is the 6N139 optoisolator used in the interfaces to devices such as large motors? +2 points

3. Calculate the number of steps per revolution for a stepper motor with a step angle of 7.5°. +2 points

4. How is stepper motor speed controlled? State any two ways a program can do this. +2 points

5. For this problem, you should look at Figure 5A on the next page as a physical example of a stepper motor. It is an example of a stepper motor with four (4) magnetic windings which are connected via an interface circuit to the HCS12 Port T pins 4, 5, 6, & 7, with an armature (rotor) that has 12 poles (combined number of North and South magnetic poles). Notice how each step rotates the rotor 30 degrees, and notice the logic states on the Port T pins going from Step 1 to Step 2. To rotate the rotor 90 degrees, you would need three (3) steps (see figure 5A for explanation).

6. Identify 2 major kinds of devices that can be used to interface a dc motor to the HCS12. +2 points

7. Given that pulses need to be delivered to a specific dc motor at the rate of 12.5 kHz to avoid vibration, write down the C statements needed to output pulses from the HCS12 to drive the at 80% of its full drive level. +2 points

8. An HCS12 timer input capture/output compare register (TC0) holds the value 0×498 when timing the period between pulses coming in from a servomotor’s optical encoder (see Figure 8A below for setup of optical encoder). Assume the counter/timer is operating at 1.0us. The encoder wheel has 6 holes. Find the motor’s speed in RPM. Show work. +2 points

9. Unidirectional dc motors often have high-voltage diode connected for reverse-bias across the motor’s input terminals. Explain why this is done. +2 points

10. What advantages do dc motors offer over stepper motors? +2 points

5. Calculate the count that should appear in the timer capture register TC0 if a 125 kHz rectangular wave is inputted on timer pin PT0 while TCTL4 is preset for falling edge detection. Assume a 24 MHz e-clock, TMSK2 was programmed with the value $02, and the count of the 1st edge event has already been subtracted off from TC0.

6. Write down the name of the HC12 timer register that should be polled through software to determine whether or not an active input edge has been captured on one of the port T pins.

This week’s lab covers two areas, conversion of digital HCS12 signals to an analog format, and the use of a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) to transfer data, and commands between the HCS12, and the DAC peripheral. Deliverables For this lab, the deliverables include the cover sheet, filled-in sections of the lab report, photographs (online), or instructor sign-offs (onsite), and answers to the questions. The cover sheet must be completed in typed format.

STEP 1: Download the Lab Download Lab 5 located in DocSharing and save it to your PC.

STEP 2: Predict the Results of Waveform Generation Program Study the 340_lab5_1 program and predict the performance, and outputs of the code. Answer the questions in Part A, Step 2.

STEP 3: Run the Waveform Generation  Program  Use the 340_lab5_1 program to load the Dragon12 board and verify  the operation. Photograph your circuit with an oscilloscope attached (online), or obtain your instructor’s sign-off (onsite).

STEP 4: Design Project Modify the software to produce, either a square wave, or sawtooth wave based on user input. Photograph your circuit with an oscilloscope attached to show both waveforms (online), or obtain your instructor’s sign-off (onsite).

STEP 5: Answer the Questions There are two questions that must be answered in this lab.

STEP 6: Complete the Cover Sheet, Type the required information onto the cover sheet.
