Industrial Drive SoC Supports Analog And Digital Position Sensors

Industrial Drive SoC Supports Analog And Digital Position Sensors
Texas Instruments Inc.

Designed to eliminate interfacing challenges associated with position sensors in industrial servo and ac-inverter drives, the TMS320F28379D and TMS320F28379S microcontrollers (MCUs) team up with DesignDRIVE Position Manager technology to provide what’s deemed as the industry's first on-chip solution supporting both analog and digital position sensors. The trio enable simple interfacing to position sensors and reportedly improve system performance by completing the decode tasks on-chip and reducing the communication latency, enabling faster control loop performance. In addition, they decrease system cost by reducing the board area required in FPGA or ASIC-based designs. Position Manager gives developers access to the base functionality needed to interface to EnDat2.2, BiSS-C, Resolver and SIN/COS sensors. The TMS320F28379D and TMS320F28379S MCUs are available for immediate sampling starting at $17.20 per 1,000. DesignDRIVE Kit (TMDXIDDK379D), which includes both the hardware and software, goes for $999.
