Microchip’s new integrated motor drivers include controllers, gate drivers and communications in a single device

Microchip Technology has launched a new family of dsPIC digital signal controller-based integrated motor drivers. These devices incorporate a dsPIC33 digital signal controller (DSC), a three-phase MOSFET gate driver and optional LIN or CAN FD transceiver into one package. This integration is designed to reduce the component count of a motor control system design, and allow smaller printed circuit board (PCB) dimensions. The devices are supported by development boards, reference, Read More
