Digital signal controllersThe family of digital signal controllers (DSCs) provides energy-efficient motor control at very competitive price points. The new MC56F8006 family is one of the most energy-efficient DSC portfolios available in the embedded market. The advanced motor control and power conversion capabilities offered by these DSCs can significantly improve the efficiency, reliability, and energy savings of appliances. The MC56F8006 DSCs combine the functionality of a microcontroller (MCU) and the processing power of a digital signal processor (DSP) with a flexible set of peripherals to create an extremely cost-effective, powerful and versatile embedded control solution. The MC56F8006 family’s combination of price, performance, peripherals and energy efficiency makes it ideal for power- and cost-sensitive motor control applications, such as three-phase BLDC motors, variable frequency drives, permanent magnet synchronous motors and handheld tool motors. The MC56F8006 family’s on-chip peripherals are specifically designed to enhance the performance of motor control and power conversion applications and to reduce external component count and overall cost. Key peripherals include three high-speed comparators, dual 12-bit analog-to-digital controllers (ADCs), two programmable gain amplifiers (PGAs) and a PWM with up to six outputs.
