+ Motor Control and Drive Design Solutions BLDC Fan Motor Control Need a highly integrated fan controller with a customizable speed/temperature profile? Take a look at Microchip’s PIC12HV and PIC16HV devices. These devices have a built-in 5V regulator and on-chip comparator to save system cost. The rotor position is determined by a hall-effect sensor connected to the on-chip comparator. The Enhanced Capture Compare PWM (ECCP) Module uses this feedback information to drive the motor by steering the PWM signal to the appropriate motor phase. Temperature sensor inputs can be used to create a unique fan speed profile and the application can provide digital status information to a host device. If space or time-to-market is a concern for your next project, Microchip’s 3-phase full-wave sensorless drivers for brushless DC (BLDC) motors are the answer. The devices feature 180° sinusoidal drive, high torque output and silent drive. With the adaptive features, parameters and wide range of power supplies, they work standalone or with Microchip’s broad range of microcontrollers.

The obvious solution is a Brushless DC (BLDC) motor. It shares many of the same torque and speed characteristics with the brushed DC motor, but without the brushes. Technically it is a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM), but its name comes from the simple method of commutation and in some cases the stator windings are constructed to match the non-sinusoidal commutation. The simpler commutation methods allows the use of a wide range of Microchip products, from 8-bit PIC16 MCUs to MTD650X dedicated BLDC driver chips to dsPIC® digital signal controllers. The device best suited to your application depends on what you are trying to achieve: performance, cost, efficiency, time to market, etc. Microchip has a wide range of application notes and development tools that allow you to get started with your application quickly.
