Microchip’s new dsPIC DSCs enable dual motor control

New  dsPIC33 Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) from Microchip – the dsPIC33EP512GM710 family – enable efficient dual motor control with 12 motor control PWM channels (6 pairs), dual 12-bit ADCs, multiple 32-bit Quadrature Encoder Interfaces, and two CAN modules. The dsPIC33EP512GM710 family can independently control two motors with a single microcontroller (MCU) for optimized system costs.  This family can also serve as a communication hub for automotive or industrial applications to connect with multiple CAN busses. 

The dsPIC33EP512GM710 s support 512 KB Flash, 48 KB RAM, and four operational amplifiers (op amps).  Other features of this family include enhanced analog functionality with two independent ADC modules, configurable as 10-bit 1.1 Msps with four sample and holds or 12-bit, 500ksps with one sample and hold, supporting up to 49 channels.

The new devices enable more efficient, less expensive designs in the appliance (air conditioners, washing machines, dishwashers, refrigerators); automotive (cooling fans, fuel pumps, water pumps, sensors); and industrial markets (embroidery machines, lathes, printers), among others.

The dsPIC33EP512GM710 family is supported by Microchip’s dsPICDEM MCLV-2 Development Board (part # DM330021-2), dsPICDEM MCHV-2 Development System (part # DM330023-2) with the new dsPIC33EP512GM706 Single Motor Internal Op Amp PIM (part # MA330033).  For non-motor control applications, a new dsPIC33EP512GM710 General Purpose PIM (part # MA330035) is offered for Microchip’s Explorer 16 Development Board (part # DM240001).
