Microsemi – SmartFusion2 SoC: Sensor-Less Motor Control Solutions for Safety Critical Applications

Microsemi_July2014_pg4a_thumb

For safety critical applications, the implementation of motor control using micro-controllers is not satisfactory because of the lack of determinism due to interrupts and the associated service routines. Additionally, microcontroller-based implementations cannot handle more than a single motor and have serious limitations to reach high performance (tens of thousands of RPMs with sampling time less […]
