Using a powerful brushless DC (BLDC) motor, AFSC 1.7 Q offers a professional-grade high-performance tool delivering 19,500 rpm working on an 18V Li-ion battery for automotive and other applications.
Active-Semi, Inc. Expands Support for USB Type-C, USB-PD and Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 2.0 Applications with 7 New DC-DC Power Management ICs
Nov 19 15
Active-Semi, Inc. announced further expansion of their high-power DC-DC power management IC portfolio with the ACT452x family of ICs to support USB Type-C, USB-PD and Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 2.0/3.0 based end-products and applications. The ACT4525/26/27/28 and ACT4529 ICs offer single-IC solutions for up to 36W of maximum power and provide customers with proven turnkey solutions for reduced time to market. Reducing system footprint by as much as 40%, and with advanced integrated features for USB auto-detect and built-in QC 2.0 decoder these ICs offer the lowest cost solution. The ACT452x family of ICs can also work with additional load switch controllers to provide augmented functionality in end-products. Target applications include car chargers (CLAs), mobile and laptop applications, and peripherals that interface with these devices.
Active-Semi, Inc. Expands Power Application Controller BLDC Motor Control Solutions with PAC5223 IC
Aug 4 15
Active-Semi, Inc. announced further expansion of their Power Application Controller based BLDC motor control portfolio with the addition of the PAC5223 IC, 4 new development kits and firmware solutions. The PAC5223 offers performance with the lowest system-cost solution available for 3-phase brushless DC motors for up to 72V. In addition, the availability of the new development boards and firmware for sensorless Trapezoidal and field-oriented control reduce development costs and enables rapid prototyping for various applications including power tools, garden tools, drones, radio controlled cars, and general-purpose BLDC applications. In a tiny 6mm x 6mm QFN package, the PAC5223 IC includes many features for added customer value. Input power less than 20V can connect directly to PAC5223 while applications with input up to 72V can use the onboard buck controller thereby reducing system BOM. In addition, the four onboard LDOs further simplify system power management. These sophisticated and highly configurable functions make PAC5223 an ideal single-IC solution for end-applications such as power tools, garden tools, drones, RCs, air movement systems and general purpose high voltage BLDC motors. The EP-HYDRA-X23-1 and EP-HYDRA-X23S-1 extend the family of HYDRA-X evaluation kits to enable fast prototyping with the PAC5223 IC. Also, the EH-BLDCM1-1 and EH-FOC1-1 HYDRA-X heads along with Active-Semi’s motor control firmware and tuning software simplify system development with sensored and sensorless FOC and sensorless Trapezoidal motor control applications. Reference designs with footprints as small as 2mm x 3mm for full-fledged 3-phase FOC based motor control up to 72V are available.
