Reference platforms and BLDC motor control apps
Reference platforms are powerful yet simple-to-use development tools built around leading-edge microcontrollers whose feature sets and performance characteristics are optimized for use as motor controllers. The single-board design provides fully integrated hardware and preloaded software, allowing designers a quick and easy method of implementing and developing brushless dc (BLDC) motor control.

  Application processors pursue multimedia
The SH-MobileL3V2 (SH7362) application processor offers a large number of video formats, high-resolution video capture, and enhanced functionality to control image quality. The SH-MobileUL (SH7363) version features a small 8 x 8-mm package and provides excellent cost/performance targeting mainstream mobile phones.

  Reference platform tackles motor control
The R8C/25-based brushless dc motor control reference platform allows quick adoption of the latest technology to appliances, power-tools, fans, pumps, and other products.

  Microchip Technology Announces Expansion of Motor Control
Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, today announced 10 new 28- and 44-pin 16-bit Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) for motor control designs requiring increased memory or performance, or enhanced peripherals, while obtaining cost and size savings associated with lower pin-count devices.

  Drive handles 5-A BLDC motor without Hall sensor
The DECS 50/5 controller drives brushless dc motors without Hall sensors and targets pump and fan applications. It can easily apply integrated controlling algorithms, and its wide input voltage range (10 to 50 V) adds flexibility.

  Demo platforms target 16- and 32-bit MCUs
The innovatively named Sub-Atomic Particle Boards are three demonstration platforms for the M16C, R8C, and H8 microcontrollers. They ease assessment of peripheral functions and system/software development tools with a truly integrated suite of hardware and software that covers all three 16- and 32-bit processors.

  Efficient motor/controls save terawatt-hours/year
Designers of appliances and control systems are simultaneously challenged with numerous inflexible targets. On top of that, they need to meet these demands in an environmentally friendly manner consistent with multiple energy policies.
