Optimized for motor control and smart sensing applications, Analog Devices ADuC7128 microcontroller (MCU) integrates a 32-bit ARM7 RISC processor with high-speed, multi-channel data conversion, and 126 kbytes Flash memory. The unit's 12-bit multi-channel, analog-to-digital converter (ADC) operates at speeds to 1 MSPS (mega-samples-per-second). Motor control specific peripherals include six-channel pulse-width modulation (PWM) with H-bridge mode. An on-chip quadrature encoder provides the speed, position, and direction control required by dc motor controls. In addition, the ADuC7128 has an integrated direct digital synthesizer (DDS), and I/V control making it applicable to a variety of motor control applications. Packaged in a 9 × 9 mm 64-LFCSP (lead-frame chip-scale package), the device is specified over an operating temperature range of -40 to +85C.
Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
