32-bit MCUs include special features for motor-control applications

The XMC™1300 and XMC1400 microcontrollers from Infineon provide high-performance control for motor drives due to features including a CCU8 PWM timer unit, easy inverter design, a POSIF interface, and adjustable ADC.

The XMC1300 and XMC1400 series of microcontrollers from Infineon integrates all the control and analog interface functions required for sensorless field-oriented control schemes, and for brushless dc (BLDC), brushed dc and permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM).

Part of the XMC1000 family of MCUs based on an Arm® Cortex®-M0 core, the XMC1300 and XMC1400 perform well in low-cost embedded control applications, not only in motor drives but also in multi-channel LED lighting, industrial I/O systems, and human-machine interfaces. 

Features of the XMC1300 and XMC1400 that are especially well suited to motor control include:

  • Easy 3-phase inverter implementation with a single CCU8 PWM unit, offering shadow register transfer, external input for fault control, binary and floating pre-scaler, and 16- to 64-bit width
  • POSIF interface to directly connect Hall sensors or an incremental encoder
  • 12-bit ADC with on-chip adjustable gain of x1, x3, x6, or x12
