Robot with "human-like" vision Industrial Control DesignLine Blog 7/6/2009 1 comment With robots being outfitted with many different types of sensors, it's not surprising that human researchers are interested in replicating how we perceive the outside world.
Designing high-performance and power-efficient motor control systems Design How-To 7/2/2009 Post a comment This paper provides an overview of motor control design considerations, such as control of multiple motors, field-oriented control, power factor correction and sensorless control. It also addresses how today's microcontrollers (MCUs) bring even greater precision, power efficiency and reduced cost to a wide range of applications.
Motor efficiency depends upon power factor Design How-To 7/2/2009 1 comment Advances in motor control algorithms and cost-effective electronic components for implementing motor
drives are creating a revolution in virtually every electric motor market. Control of the power factor in an
efficient manner also means less lost energy, both in the motor and drive electronics.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
