Microsemi and TRINAMIC deliver dual motor control kit

ALISO VIEJO, USA: Microsemi Corp. and TRINAMIC announced the availability of a new motor control kit allowing designers to lower product-development costs and bring products to market quickly. The solution includes Microsemi's SmartFusion evaluation kit and TRINAMIC's motor control daughter board kit.

Microsemi's award-winning SmartFusion customizable system-on-chip (cSoC) combines three features crucial for successful implementation of complex motor control algorithms: an embedded microcontroller, programmable analog and field programmable gate array (FPGA). This integration creates an ideal platform to partition software and hardware architectural requirements.

SmartFusion's embedded ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller is utilized for system layer task management, algorithm execution and system connectivity. The onboard programmable analog provides full sense and control for voltage, current and temperature monitoring.

The flash FPGA logic enables hardware acceleration and math co-processing. In addition, computational/cycle intensive algorithmic routines can be implemented within the FPGA to execute extremely fast and efficient subroutines.
