Microchip dsPIC processors are a very powerful, cost-effective solution.

They are digital signal controllers, a practical blend of DSP and microcontroller.

Providing the capability for audio processing and motor control, they are readily utilised in many products and applications today.

For audio applications.

They provide:

●    DSP capability

●    codec interfaces (I2S and AC97) and

●    up to 2 on-chip analogue-to-digital converters (1 LSB accuracy, 10-bit @ 4 Msps or 12-bit @ 500 ksps)


For motor control applications.

They provide a quadrature encoder interface and sophisticated motor control PWMs.

On-chip motor control PWMs support:

●    Three-Phase AC Induction Motor (ACIM)

●    Switched Reluctance Motor

●    Brushless DC (BLDC) Motor

●    Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

●    Independent Power Factor Correction (PFC) in a motor system

●    Induction cooking systems

●    DC motor control systems

●    Single-phase inverter control

●    and Single-phase ACIM control

At Bluefruit, we have all the compilers, tools and debuggers required to make developing a dsPIC into your product simple, and to this day dsPICs are one of our favourite choices of embedded processors.
