BLDC Motor Control Using Inductive Position Sensing

Brushless DC (BLDC) motor control is a key technology for electrification of vehicle. This Renesas solution features the RH850/F1KM-S1 microcontroller (MCU), along with an inductive position sensor IC and power MOSFETs in an automotive 12V motor control system solution. The high-speed inductive position sensor IC provides position information in the form of demodulated sine/cosine raw data via differential or single-ended analog or digital interfaces, and an I2C interface for diagnostic/programming purposes. This solution is available in the form of a starter kit for evaluation purposes (Y-BLDC-SK-RH850F1KM-S1).
