Bridgeswitch Code Library for FAULT Status Communication Interface

This archive contains a code library and application programming interface (API) for an exemplary implementation of the BridgeSwitch IC FAULT communication interface using a Cypress PSoC microcontroller. It includes a PSoC Creator IDE version 4.1 project file, C++ code examples to support the API, and documentation on the available functionality.

Direct Use Of Bridgeswitch Current Sense Signal Output In Field Oriented Control Of Brushless Dc Motors

High performance motor drives commonly use field-oriented control (FOC) since it offers smooth and efficient operation throughout the entire speed range. BridgeSwitch offers a unique function by providing a small signal output that is an instantaneous representation of the positive phase current. This function can eliminate commonly used discrete current sense resistors and associated amplifiers, thereby reducing cost and design complexity.
