Freescale expands DSC portfolio
October 13, 2010 // Phil Ling
Digital power and motor control are the target applications for the MC56F82xx family, which is claimed to provide low power and high performance at a low price point for power conversion and motor control applications, to enhance energy efficiency and create greener appliances and industrial equipment.
Freescale has expanded its family of digital signal controllers (DSCs), for digital power conversion applications such as board-mounted digital power supplies for servers, industrial and telecom power supplies and advanced motor control.
The MC56F82xx family is a member of the 56800E core based family of DSCs, which combines the functionality of a microcontroller and the processing power of a digital signal processor, with a wide set of peripherals including a high speed pulse width modulator with NanoEdge placement as well as two ultra-fast ADCs.
The MC56F82xx devices feature embedded Flash and up to nine enhanced flex pulse width modulation (PWM) channels, including six with NanoEdge placement. The devices include an inter-modular crossbar switch that allows programmable, internal module connections between and among the peripherals and package pins.
Said to be up to four times more energy-efficient than other available DSC offerings, the MC56F82xx devices are designed to operate at 60MHz and up to 3.6V. Freescale also offers a comprehensive ecosystem of software tools, demonstration boards, reference designs, application notes and webinars.
This support includes the Processor Expert rapid application design tool, intended to enable quick generation of peripheral drivers and software libraries. The 56F82xx is also supported by FreeMASTER software, a sophisticated tool with intuitive navigation that allows control of an application remotely from a user-friendly graphical environment running on a PC and provides the ability to view real-time application variables in both textual and graphical form.
