Check out this VESC with no DRV chip

Clicked onto this while I was browsing the VESC project forum.

I’ll probs buy one for an electric scooter project I have in mind.


  • Still programmable by the VESC tool.
  • Doesn’t have a temp sensor.
  • Makes use of a separate power board, so the electric engineers of the crowd can probably redesign the power board to accommodate beefier FETs
  • Unused CPU pins breakout to a testpad.

ive been thinking along this line for a little while now. high power board bolted to a heatsink with a controller daughterboard connected with headers.
