Device Overview

Summary

Microchip’s dsPIC33E family of digital signal controllers (DSCs) features a 70 MIPS dsPIC® DSC core with integrated DSP and enhanced on-chip peripherals. These DSCs enable the design of high-performance, precision motor control systems that are more energy efficient, quieter in operation, have a great range and extended life. They can be used to control brushless DC, permanent magnet synchronous, AC induction and stepper motors. These devices are also ideal for high-performance general purpose applications.

Low Power High Voltage Motor Control Reference Design ( LPHV-MC-Board )

Even though most high voltage (110Vac/220Vac) 3-phase motor control applications are high power (>1kW) there are many applications that are low power (<500W). In those cases running on a high power system is not very efficient.  To better demonstrate the capabilities in regards to efficiency in low power high voltage motor control we have developed this reference design (limited to...
