Trinamic’s Intelligent Microsystems for Servo Controllers Shorten Development Time


Trinamic Motion Control GmbH & Co. KG, a leading supplier of semiconductors, electronics and mechatronic solutions in the fields of motor and motion control, is proud to release the first integrated servo controller chip for two and three-phase motors. A dedicated servo controller chip, the TMC4670 allows engineers to overcome a wide range of design challenges with minimal effort. It handles all real-time critical motor control functions while also enabling controller and PMW cycle times which are otherwise difficult or impossible to achieve with microcontrollers. Thus, developers can focus on higher-level system functions without sacrificing system performance. This saves development time, reduces risk and simplifies future firmware revisions because the time-critical control function is no longer in the development scope. Trinamic will present the drives to the public at Electronica 2016, in Hall A4 at booth 513.

Servo control is always beneficial when exact positioning is required due to unforeseen process conditions or interruptions. This is especially true in robotics, or situations in which the positioning application puts the highest of demands on electrical drives. Besides classic industrial applications, the same quality of motor control system is increasingly required for applications in which classic servo controllers are not suitable or economical, e.g. desktop manufacturing and new, fast-growing fields like camera gimbals.

Michael Randt, Trinamic Founder and CEO:

“Easy integration opens the door to new fields of application. With the new components, for example, we were able to produce an active prosthetic leg together with Icelandic manufacturer Össur; the performance, reliability and compact design we achieved would never have been possible using traditional servo technology.”

The TMC4670 has integrated analog digital converters for measuring current phases, and supports various types of positioning sensors. That way, the controller can flexibly map two sensors.

The components will be available at a price of USD 56 at quantities of 1000 as a BGA256 (17x17) package in the first quarter of 2017. To accelerate the design process, Trinamic offers complete end-to-end evaluation kits. The development boards are open-source hardware and freely available for use as a reference design.

LIAF: Experts at the European Parlament - E-Cigarettes Are a Potential Game Changer for European Health20.3.2018 18:27Pressemelding

The following is a statement from LIAF – Lega Italiana Anti Fumo: The panel discussion at the EU Parliament recognises the potential benefits of electronic cigarettes and for European countries to treat these products as regular consumer products to ensure equal access for all Europeans. Following a debate in which leading scientific experts presented the state-of-the-art evidence around e-cigarettes, it became clear that public health is increasingly moving on from an approach that solely advocates ‘quit-or-die’ to a harm reduction strategy. “I’m glad to have brought the Parliament attention to this important issue for public health. Today we have listened to the results of scientific studies and researches from a high-level expert’s roundtable, which have illustrated to us the advantages of electronic cigarettes and the potential public health benefits that these products pose when compared to the conventional cigarettes. As decision-makers, we need to take into considerations these

Morinaga Milk's New Probiotic Strain, Bifidobacterium breve A1, May Prevent Onset of Alzheimer's Disease20.3.2018 18:00Pressemelding

Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264), a leading Japanese dairy product company, today announced the results of a new study investigating the preventive effects of its new probiotic strain Bifidobacterium breve A1 on a model of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers found that B. breve A1 improved spatial recognition capability, as well as learning and memory capabilities, in cognitively deficient mice, indicating it could play an important role in preventing the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease in humans.1 This press release features multimedia.

Dubai Breaks Ground on World’s Biggest CSP Project20.3.2018 16:10Pressemelding

HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, broke ground on the 4th phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. This is the biggest Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) investment project in the world, based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model, and will generate 700MW on a single site. It will have the world’s tallest solar tower at 260 metres, and the largest thermal energy storage capacity in the world. It will provide clean energy to 270,000 residences, reducing 1.4 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually. The project will use two technologies: a 600MW parabolic basin complex and a 100MW solar tower, over 43 square kilometres. This project, with AED14.2 billion in investments, achieved the lowest Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) of USD 7.3 cents per kW/h. This press release features multimedia.
