dsPIC® DSC Product Family

Advanced Motor Control often does not require a DSP but benefits greatly from the DSP resources found on the dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs). For example, our sensorless field-oriented control algorithm makes use of the single cycle MAC with data saturation, zero overhead looping and barrel shifting to achieve stunning performance.
