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 IPS2550 outputs the absolute electrical rotor position via differential or single-ended analog sine/cosine signals. It also offers an I2C interface for programming and diagnostic purposes. This solution is available in the form of a starter kit for evaluation purposes (Y-BLDC-SK-RH850F1KM-S1-V2).

System Benefits
