DMC-1600 compact PCI bus and DMC-1700 ISA bus controllers include sinusoidal commutation for brushless motors as a standard feature. This enables the controller to generate current command signals. Sinusoidal commutation controls the motor in a manner that minimizes power dissipation. Output signals vary gradually, resulting in smoother motion, especially when applied to linear motors.

A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
