Motor Control

Shorten your development cycle using free motor control software with application notes and tuning guides. Scalable motor control development tools promote rapid prototyping for low-voltage and high-voltage systems, including dual motor control options.

PIC® Microcontrollers and dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSC) contain innovative motor control Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) peripherals, including complimentary waveforms and dedicated time base. For applications that require variable speed with constant torque and field-oriented control, the high-performance dsPIC DSC core includes Digital Signal Processor (DSP) instructions for more precise control.

The single-chip motor control and motor drive solutions enable simpler designs and decrease board space. These are often used as companion chips with PIC microcontrollers for stepper motors.
