PCI-SIG has formed an Automotive working group in March 2021 that Renesas has joined straight away. Although PCIe is already used in today’s vehicles, PCI-SIG wants to evaluate what are potential use-cases for PCIe in the next generation vehicles and where PCIe specification needs to evolve further to be accepted as mature technology for high-speed data transfer. In this Automotive networking blog we give a brief background summary of PCIe, what are potential PCIe use-cases and what needs to be looked at to smoothen the adaption path of PCIe in the future automotive applications.

With the growing trend of energy efficient appliances, BLDC motors are widely used in home appliance today. Besides major appliances, BLDC motor adoption is prevailing in small appliances such as ceiling fan, vacuum cleaner, power tools. Another trend aiding BLDC adoption is the shrinking cost/processing power with MCUs. And 32-bit MCU are more suitable and affordable for simple motor applications as well. This solution demonstrates single motor technique [120deg/trapezoidal] for BLDC motor control using Renesas RX13T 32-bit MCU for motor control.
