ON Semiconductor in association with Intel plans for rapid advancements in system architecture and increased total performance in motor control solutions addressing a wide variety of Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications.
According to the press release, the new Intel Quark processors for IoT provide flexible, low-power computing for a wide variety of small-form-factor applications bringing low-cost connectivity, integration, and compatibility to the next wave of intelligent things. Leveraging the benefits of the processor, ON Semiconductor has combined it with its motor drive and industry leading power management solutions, to implement the Direct Torque Control Space Vector Modulation (DTC-SVM) motor control platform for Brushless DC (BLDC) and AC inverter motors.
In addition, the combination enables high dynamic performance at low speed and high torque, a 10 per cent reduction in switching losses, and a 10x latency reduction.
In a media release, David Somo, vice president corporate marketing for ON Semiconductor said. “We are proud to work with Intel as they share a similar strategic vision of enabling the Internet of Things. Intel’s IA architecture spans the edge to cloud computing spectrum and benefits from a comprehensive development tools ecosystem that simplifies and accelerates customer development.”
