NXP Semiconductors announces its expansion of the industry’s leading family of automotive motor control microcontrollers (MCUs), and introduces a broad portfolio of hardware, software and integrated motor control solutions designed to dramatically speed time to market. Using NXP’s new integrated solutions, a fully functioning motor system can be up and running in only 10 minutes, thereby radically simplifying system development and shortening design cycles.
According to IHS Markit Technologies, approximately three billion electric motors for automotive applications will be shipped this year, with the vast majority being DC and brushless DC motors.
NXP’s new MagniV solutions are single-chip, high-voltage MCUs housing the power supply, physical communication layer (PHY) and application-specific drivers. The solutions also feature advanced development tool enablement technologies such as the Motor Control Development Toolbox, MCAT and FreeMASTER for shorter tuning and debug cycles. And for even faster time to market, NXP now supports all MagniV devices with the Automotive Math and Motor Control Library (AMMCLib), as well as application-specific development kits which serve as hardware and software reference implementations. The result is a robust enablement platform for the rapid development of compact and highly efficient automotive motor systems.
NXP’s addition of 17 new MagniV MCUs more than doubles the size of the popular portfolio for the control of a wide array of automotive systems and motor applications. Like all MagniV MCUs, these new additions share a common platform for streamlined development and optimized hardware and software reuse.
NXP’s new offerings for automotive motor control applications include:
