Comment on Generate your own commutation table: Trapezoidal control 3-phase BLDC motors using hall sensors / (TI E2E Community)
Sir, I am working on DRV8332, but instead of getting + - 0 in my outputs at a time, I am getting + + 0 in the outputs.Due to this motors do not seem to run at all,Can you shed some light on this ?...
Real world variables / (Stack Overflow)
Part of what makes embedded systems fun for me is that they normally interact with the physical world. The physical world contains real parameters which we measure using transducers, signal conditioning circuits and so on, such that ultimately we end up with a variable in our embedded code that purports to represent this...

Do you need some sort of circuit between your sensor and an analog-to-digital converter? Before you make any connections, get the electrical specifications for the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and for the sensor or sensors in your system. The explanation in this white paper will help you understand what you need and why you need it.
How often should your equipment make measurements? This question often arises when people draft plans to automatically measure a physical quantity such as temperature, pressure, acidity, liquid level, and so on. You can approach this problem in several ways, from an educated guess to a mathematical analysis of your system. The examples in this white paper use temperature measurements because people measure temperature more than any other physical characteristic.
In most applications, linearity in analog measurements is more important than absolute precision. Ideally, in an A/D converter the digital value ramps smoothly as the input increases across its entire range. The deviation from ideal operation is a function of each ADC’s particular architecture and is expressed as differential nonlinearity (DNL). Find out how DNL is determined and the effect it has on making accurate measurements in this white paper.
Today, the ability to track the orientation or position of a device is a common feature in many portable and wearable products. Computing the orientation is a non-trivial task that
