Mouser offers Microchip’s dsPIC33CH for motor control

Mouser Electronics is now stocking the dsPIC33CH dual-core digital signal controllers (DSCs) from Microchip Technology. They combine two dsPIC DSC cores into a single chip, and are the first in the dsPIC33 family with optional support for the control area network flexible data rate (CAN-FD) protocol for robust communication with increased bandwidth.

The dsPIC33CH controllers are suitable for high-performance embedded applications that require sophisticated algorithms, says Mouser, including motor control, server power supplies, automotive sensors, industrial internet of things (IIoT) systems, wireless power, and industrial automation.

The Microchip dsPIC33CH dual-core DSCs are built to allow independent code development. The devices’ master core runs the user interface, communications and system-monitoring functions, while the slave core executes dedicated, time-critical control code. The controllers include high-performance peripherals including four 12-bit, 3.5-Msamples per second analogue to digital converters (ADCs) and up to 12 high-speed PWM channels with 250pico second resolution. Integrated power-on reset and brown-out reset, together with three low power management modes in the dsPIC33CH controllers improve energy efficiency, says Mouser.

The dsPIC33CH dual-core DSCs are supported by the dsPIC33CH Curiosity development board. Designed for use with the Microchip MPLAB X integrated development environment (IDE) and the MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) tool, the development board includes an integrated PICkit-on-board programmer and debugger, through-hole and SMT prototyping area, and two MikroElektronika mikroBUS interfaces for hardware expansion.
