TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG enable dual control of two brushless DC motors
Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced two new products to join their range of ARM® Cortex®-M4F based TX04 series microcontrollers. Both the TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG are capable of operating two brushless DC motors simultaneously.
The new microcontrollers aim to satisfy ever-increasing demand for more energy efficient motors and incorporate vectoring technology to ensure highly efficient motor control. The TMPM475FDFG further integrates a CAN (Controller Area Network) controller which is required for use in specialist factory automation systems. Both chips are ideal for a wide range of uses ranging from industrial applications to use in home appliances, such as washing machines, fridges and air-conditioning units.
The TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG are based upon the high-performance ARM® Cortex®-M4F and can operate at up to 120MHz. They incorporate two modules, each containing a programmable motor drive, 12-bit AD converter and vector engine, ensuring the efficient and simultaneous operation of two brushless DC motors from a single chip.
Housed in a compact 14mm x 14mm LQFP100 package both the TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG offer an operating voltage ranging from 4.5 to 5.5V.
