Application-Specific MCUs focus on motor control

ZiLOG has launched a new version of its 8-bit Z8 Encore! Microcontrollers aimed at a wide variety of motor control applications. The integrated A/D converter with its ‘Time Stamp’ feature is coupled to the 3-Phase PWM output module, allowing for very accurate speed control. The integrated analog modules allow for current sampling, as well as ‘on-the-fly’ implementation of torque or speed control.
