dsPIC33EP “MC” Family for Motor Control Applications

Microchip’s dsPIC33EP family of Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) features a 70 MIPS dsPIC® DSC core with integrated DSP and enhanced on-chip peripherals. These DSCs enable the design of high-performance, precision motor control systems that are more energy efficient, quieter in operation, allows for greater range and extended battery life. They can be used to control brushless DC, permanent magnet synchronous and AC induction motors. The dsPIC33EP family is supported with a suite of motor control development solutions including the Motor Control Library, Simulink® Motor Control Library Blocksets, Motor Control Starter Kit, dsPICDEM MCLV-2 Development Board and applications notes covering the major motor types and other important topics like Class B Safety Software.
