Chronicle Technology has just recently completed ESD and life testing of its motion control ASIC, which now clears the path for production volume ramp-up. This custom designed mixed-signal ASIC is targeted for a publicly traded company’s flag ship consumer product.
The ASIC controls multiple motors for forward / reverse / variable speed / variable torque operations. Also included are 200 general purpose instrumentation amplified sensor inputs, battery charge management, voltage level sensing, a temperature sensor, an internal RC oscillator, a watchdog timer and an LDO regulator.
The motor operating Voltage range is between 5V to 35V, while the rest of the chip can operate between 3V to 5V. All control and data are available through a 10 MHz SPI bus. The part is packaged in a 68 pin QFN package.
This ASIC is similar to many others designed at Chronicle and CSS. We specialize in custom mixed-signal ASICs for control and instrumentation applications in a variety of markets.
