Typical application specific motor control solutions are based on simple microcontrollers - controlling the DC or AC motor with a simple speed reference or just open loop. In these types of controller systems Analog Devices' mixed signal integration offers complete solutions directly applicable from simple software and hardware implementation.
Drive systems offer the advantage of closing the loop to perform better control of torque currents and in some cases position. This higher performance is required in certain applications and these designs are optimized on power flow, along with efficiency.
Servo solutions are associated with attaining the highest performance and accuracy of a moving system. In most cases the end solution is a CNC or robot system that operates with high precision and where control of absolute position, along with best torque alignment, is required. Analog Devices' offers a complete solution covering all key components in the signal chain.
Application specific power control solutions achieve more combined value on the power module as it relates to control. With smart IPM, inverters offer integrated solutions that can be used directly in conjunction with ADCs, isolators and interface devices.
UPS systems, or advanced power supplies, represent conversions from AC to DC and DC to AC. Typical UPS systems are utilized to minimize the impact of blackouts and to strengthen the quality of the supplied power/voltage.
