No the control board will be different. You have to use a different microcontroller that has multiple pwm outputs and programmable dead time. I'm going to use a dsPIC30F4011, which has 40 pins available for whatever. It's going to have CANbus and RS-232 serial interface. I can't wait to test CAN to like 1Mbps. It's important to send messages like "display the letter r" in a femtosecond. hahaha.

Also, it will have 4 isolated dc-dc supplies instead of just 1 like it is now. The high side and low side have to have their own isolated supplies.
