This Proof of Concept (PoC) provides for a high efficiency, high torque, low noise, and smooth start solution. Efficiency is key for this application; thus, built-in self-align dead time with chip design technology offers lower thermal losses and reduces power loss.
In this design, a microcontroller (MCU) + pre-driver in a single chip reduces component count* and board size. A proprietary sensorless algorithm reduces dependency on external components.
This smart solution consists of core ceiling fan functions like dual rotation, natural breeze, LED lighting, and temperature/humidity sensing, with IoT features supporting wireless protocol (Wi-Fi) for control using the Android OS for smart devices.
