The BLE 3 part series targets applications with low-power, low-latency and low-throughput requirements.
While the market requires better power performance, it also continuously demands more functionality from devices. The challenge many developers face today is maintaining or improving battery operating life while simultaneously increasing a device’s capabilities. For many devices, it is not feasible to increase battery size or capacity; this means that developers need to achieve higher performance within the same power footprint, if battery life is not to be compromised.
These video series will talk about the different types of motors used in the industry; DC, Brushless DC, Steppers, Permanent Magnet Synchronous, and AC Induction. To gather a better understanding of motors, differences of these motors with advantages and disadvantages of each will be shown. Basic motor drive circuits will be discussed from full H-Bridge drive to half-bridge for 3-phase motors. Other drive concepts such as 6-step commutation along with drive issues such as current recirculation will be discussed. Field Oriented Control will also be discussed and how
