Motor Control

The need for advanced motor control has increased due to user expectations for quiet operation and expanding government regulations to reduce energy consumption. To achieve these goals, motors require a much higher level of electronic control.

We offer a variety of motor control solutions to address the needs of motor configuration and functionality. These include our low-pin-count 8-bit PIC16 and PIC18 microcontrollers (MCUs). Our 16-bit dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers include dedicated motor control Pulse-Width Modulators (PWMs) enabling variable speed with constant torque and Field-Oriented Control (FOC) for greater efficiency. dsPIC33 devices are supported by free algorithms for BLDC, PMSM and ACIM motors, including sensorless control and FOC. For 32-bit appliance solutions, the PIC32MK series of devices is designed to support dual motors plus Power Factor Correction (PFC), and SAMC and SAMD devices are low-cost, 32-bit Arm® Cortex® M0+ based options.
