Optimising the efficiency of electric motors

Optimising the efficiency of electric motors
Low Power Consumption is the Key Many electric motors consume more current than necessary just because they do not operate within their optimum efficiency range. Field-oriented control (FOC) is ideally suited to solve this problem by enabling precise control based on torque and speed.

DSPs target power constrained applications

DSPs target power constrained applications
Analog Devices’ latest ADSP-BF70x Blackfin digital signal processor family delivers 800 MMACS of processing power at less than 100 mW – double the performance or half the power of competing devices, claims the company. The eight-member Blackfin processor family includes up to 1MBit of internal SRAM, eliminating external memory in many applications, while a second configuration features an optional DDR memory interface.

Low-voltage MCUs bridge mobile-platform subsystems

Low-voltage MCUs bridge mobile-platform subsystems
STMicroelectronics has unveiled a pair of low-voltage microcontrollers to help overcome the challenges designers face when adding a companion chip to a low-voltage host processor. These focused low-voltage microcontrollers connect to the same digital power domain as the host, such as a 1.8V power supply, while allowing on-chip peripherals to operate from higher voltages such as 3.3V, giving freedom from the usual performance trade-offs that come with lower supply voltages.

Stack usage analysis enhances MCU development tools

IAR Systems has a new version of its development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for RX. Version 2.60 contains stack usage analysis functionality and several other new features that make the toolchain for Renesas RX microcontrollers even more powerful. Calculating the stack space is notoriously hard for all but the smallest embedded systems. Worst case maximum stack depth is very useful information in most embedded projects, as it greatly simplifies estimates of how much stack an application will need.
