TI enables smaller, safer and more accurate rotary position sensing with the industry's most integrated resolver sensor interface

New resolver-to-digital converter enables up to a 50 percent reduction in board space and a lower bill-of-materials cost in automotive and industrial applications

DALLAS, June 9, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced the industry's first resolver sensor interface with integrated power supply, exciter amplifier and functional safety features. The new device is capable of simultaneously exciting the resolver sensor coil and calculating the angle and velocity of a rotating motor shaft without the external components required by competitive solutions. The PGA411-Q1 resolver-to-digital converter's architecture helps enable designers to increase system accuracy and stability for end equipment like hybrid electric vehicle/electric vehicle (HEV/EV) traction inverters, electric power steering, integrated start-stop generators, industrial alternating current (AC) servo motor control and robotic arm control. For more information, see www.ti.com/pga411q1-pr.

TI enables smaller, safer and more accurate rotary position sensing with the industry's most integrated resolver sensor interface.

Key features and benefits of the new PGA411-Q1:

Design for functional safety system redundancy

Developers can pair the PGA411-Q1 resolver-to-digital converter with TI's C2000™ F28379 microcontrollers (MCUs) and DesignDRIVE Position Manager technology for functional safety redundancy. The DesignDRIVE Position Manager technology gives engineers access to the base functionality needed to interface to resolver sensors, saving time in development, support and testing in industrial servo and AC inverter drives.

The PGA411-Q1 joins TI's growing portfolio of sensing innovations that provide the performance, accuracy and power consumption required in sensing designs.

Tools and support to speed design

Engineers can quickly and easily evaluate the performance of the PGA411-Q1 resolver-to-digital converter with an evaluation module (EVM). The PGA411-Q1 EVM is available today for US$149 from the TI store and authorized distributors. Designers can also evaluate the suitability of this device for their systems with a TI Designs reference design: Automotive Resolver-to-Digital Converter Reference Design for Safety Application.

Package, availability and pricing

The PGA411-Q1 is now available in a 64-pin thermally enhanced thin quad flat pack (HTQFP) PowerPAD™ package starting at US$12.96 in 1,000-unit quantities.
