Servo-Drive Enlists ARM Cortex-M3

TDK-Micronas’ HVC 4223F flex servo-drive for direct control of electric motors enables cost-effective realization of powerful and compact dc motor control. Powered by a 32-bit CPU core (ARM Cortex-M3), the HVC 4223F device integrates various analog functions to deliver high-power solutions for a wide range of applications, including automotive, industrial, consumer, instrumentation, and more.


The servo drive features flexible peripherals, which allow the device to directly control brush-type, stepper (bipolar or three phase), or brushless direct current (BLDC) motors via integrated high-performance half-bridges without the need for external components. The latest device also contains an advanced LIN UART with a LIN 2.x transceiver, as well as voltage regulators to connect the device directly to a 5.4V to 18V automotive board net. In addition, the Flex Servo-Drive also features a 32KB flash program memory, which provides high flexibility in code development, production ramp-up, and in-system firmware update.
