Renesas offers monitoring functions using a tiny CMIC*1 in a variety of motor control applications. CMIC GreenPAK™ is a cost-effective NVM*2 programmable device that allows automotive designers to integrate many system functions into a single AEC-Q100 qualified IC, resulting in minimizing component count and board space.

System Benefits:

  • Provides an overcurrent detection system using a shunt resistor for 12V motor systems and a current sensor for xEV motor systems.
  • Provides motor rotation position detection through a zero-cross comparator in a square-wave motor controller system.
  • Enables retrofitting the CMIC to existing designs.
  • The GreenPAK designer software/development kit enables quick modification to changing design requirements and increases productivity at the design and prototype verification stages.

*1 CMIC: Configurable Mixed-Signal IC
*2 NVM: Non-Volatile Memory
