Digital signal controllers feature deterministic performance
Microchip’s dsPIC33CK 16-bit digital signal controllers (DSCs) deliver fast deterministic performance in time-critical control applications. The single-core DSC family boasts expanded context selected registers to reduce interrupt latency, as well as faster instruction execution to speed up digital signal processor (DSP) routines.
Processing 100 MIPS, the core doubles the performance of previous single-core dsPIC DSCs, making the series well-suited for motor control, digital power, and other applications requiring sophisticated algorithms, such as automotive sensors and industrial automation. Specifically, the controllers are intended for controlling multiple sensorless, brushless motors running field-oriented control algorithms and power factor correction.
