In todays world, where motors account for almost 45% of energy consumption, motor/motion control has become ubiquitous in numerous industrial, medical, military, avionics and automotive segments with applications such as assembly/ packaging, CNC, elevator and factory/process automation, robotic arms, nuclear plants, implant devices, fusion pumps, missile launch systems, flight control systems, power trains, engine cooling, and many others. In order to have efficiency of these motors, motor control is of utmost importance. Energy efficiency and precise control (accurate rotor position, precise toque output) are two major challenges for any motor control design. Worldwide government legislations are getting more and more aggressive on increasing motor energy efficiency levels to keep the environment green.Microsemi offers a one-stop-shop for all your motor control solution needs.
