12/2/2004   Post a comment
Brushless dc motors have a straight-line, speed-torque curve similar to that of their mechanically commutated counterparts. BLDC motor internals consist of a multi-pole permanent magnet rotor and a stator with multiple coils linked together using a triangle or star connection. Cypress engineers offer the sequencing codes for driving brushless motors with Hall Effect sensors and an analog controller.

12/2/2004   Post a comment
The advent of equalizer circuits that compensate for cable loss allows systems to send high-speed data over very long copper cables. The use of integrated circuits for equalization of cable loss has enabled a major reduction in the cost of interconnects for communications systems. For optimum performance, such systems must minimize any radiated emissions from the cables and connectors. A Maxim engineer offers this assessment of EMI reduction techniques, including coax, twisted pair cabling and e
