Multi-axis motor control design with SmartFusion customizable SoCs
Presented by Luca Cattaneo, Microsemi
Microsemi motor control IC solutions address lower power, smaller footprint, high processing speed requirements for multi-motor control systems. The latest generation of motor control devices is based on the SmartFusion family of Customizable System-On-Chip (cSoC).
SmartFusion in addition to the traditional flexibility available in the FPGA logic, provides an embedded ARM® Cortex-M3 and a programmable analog into a fully in system re-configurable single monolithic IC.
The SmartFusion Dual Motor Control Kit prototyping platform from Microsemi adresses both BLDC and stepper motors, and includes a SmartFusion Evaluation board and the motor control daughter card along with two motors to enable immediate development for your applications.
