Future Electronics — How ST’s Motor Profiler Tool Helps Accelerate Motor-Control System Design

FTMMay2018-TV-FutureElectronics-tile-200x200

By: Gianluigi Forte, Andrea Spampinato, Marcello Palano, Alessandro Corsaro Field Oriented Commutation (FOC), also called vector control, a method for controlling electric motors, was invented in the early 1970s, and remains the most advanced motor-control technique available to the system designer today. It operates by controlling the alternating currents that flow into the phases of […]

STMicroelectronics — Advanced BLDC Controller with Embedded Cortex M0 Core MCU

FTMMay2018-AS-STMicroelectronics-BLDC-tile-200x200

  Brushed DC motors have been the predominate choice in power tool design, such as drills, for decades. However, adoption of Brushless DC (BLDC) in power tools is rapidly proliferating due to better efficiency and the availability of cost-effective BLDC motors. Today, in fact, most high-end power drilling tools use BLDC motors. The typical current […]

STMicroelectronics — T-Series Triacs Change the Game in the Ever-Growing Appliance World

FTMMay2018-AS-STMicroelectronics-tseries-tile-200x200

         The T-series Triacs in ceramic insulated TO220AB package is extended from 16A to 8A and 12A rated current. Designed for a junction operation at +150°C, this series proposes a high EMI immunity and an 800V rating for design simplification in the control of AC load and AC/DC converter. T-Series Triacs are designed for the […]

STMicroelectronics — Replace Schottky with Field-Effect

FTMMarch2018-CF-STMicroelectronics-tile-200x200

STMicroelectronics’ new series of 60V and 100 V field-effect rectifier diodes (FERD) range from 20A to 40A with 6 package options. Based on a proprietary process, these diodes achieve the best-in-class VF/IR trade-off for a given chip surface. These diodes deliver much better intrinsic performance than traditional Schottky-structured diodes of equivalent voltage and current ratings. […]

Future Electronics – Silicon Carbide: Time for the Adventurous Designer to Take Advantage of the Latest Standard Products

FTMFeb2018-TV-FutureElectronicsSiliconCarbide-tile-200x200

By: Erich Niklas, Power Specialist FAE, Future Electronics The performance advantages of Silicon Carbide (SiC), a wide bandgap material, are well known to designers of high-voltage power systems. The drawbacks of the products and the supply chain that supported them, however, have in the past appeared sufficiently serious to dissuade some designers from taking the […]

STMicroelectronics – VIPower, The intelligent way to switch

pg22_stm

STMicroelectronics’ VIPower “smart switches” are aimed at 12V and 24V+ systems, and are similar to e-fuses with protection features that are often used in 5V systems (e.g. sequencing or protecting loads in battery powered handheld devices) or 12V systems (set top boxes, SSDs). VIPower is an excellent fit for driving loads that operate on a […]
