How to cost-effectively transition to Brushless DC Motors
New Micronas whitepaper about "How to cost-effectively transition to Brushless DC Motors". Posted at EngineeringSpecifier Magazine as well a sother top tech magazines.
This new whitepaper from Micronas discusses the advantages of using BLDC motor technology and electronics.
The number of small motor driving solutions using BLDC motor technology will grow because of the declining cost of electronics. The diversity and functionality of motors will increase, including networking between intelligent drives. Furthermore, the requirements for lower weight, smaller size, higher power density, and lower cost must be met. The used motors need to be small, light and are used in distributed LIN bus networks. The design-in time can be reduced because complete platforms of tiny motors can be developed using a single-chip solution. Tailoring to different motor types and properties can be achieved by means of adapting the software. Today’s brush-type DC motor solutions can be replaced 1:1 by a BLDC motor system, that on the outside, look like a conventional motor but inside provides all advantages needed to realize intelligent motion control
