Microchip Technology announces 10 dsPIC33 28- and 44-pin 16-bit digital signal controllers (DSCs) for motor control designs that require increased memory or performance or enhanced peripherals while obtaining cost and size savings associated with lower pin-count devices. The devices come in packages as small as 6 mm. They offer up to 128 Kbytes of programmable Flash memory to accommodate large proprietary algorithms such as observer motor control models, integration of motor control algorithms with system-level control, communication stacks such as CAN, and graphic libraries for displays. Two of the motor control devices contain digital-to-analog converters (DACs) which can be useful for motor noise reduction strategies or audio messages. All of the motor control DSCs feature two quadrature encoder interfaces for applications with rotor position sensors.
