Dual Motor Control Made Easy with dsPIC33E DSCs

Microchip offers the dsPIC33E family of high-performance, energy-efficient DSCs

Image of Microchip Technology's Dual Motor Control Made Easy with dsPIC33E DSCsMicrochip’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 greater 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.

Microchip recently expanded their dsPIC® DSC portfolio to add higher levels of integration for motor control applications. The new family of DSCs enables efficient dual-motor control with 12 motor control PWM channels (6 pairs), dual 12-bit ADCs, multiple 32-bit Quadrature Encoder interfaces, and two CAN modules. With this level of integration, the dsPIC33EP512GM710 family can independently control two motors with a single microcontroller (MCU) for optimized system costs. This family can also serve as a communication hub for automotive or industrial applications to connect with multiple CAN busses.
