Motor drive solutions
Delivering superior efficiency, reliability and accuracy with unmatched protection
Electric motors are ubiquitous in industrial applications. Whether it is a DC type, an AC type or a special type like a stepper motor or brushless DC motor, electric motors play a vital role in the operation of motorized machines in industrial environments. In every motor system there exists a motor drive subsystem for which Broadcom offers a wide range of product solutions that include optocouplers, fiber optic solutions, and rotary and motion control encoders.
As the world becomes increasingly energy conscious and industries worldwide have a renewed focus on energy efficiency for electric motors, there emerge new technical challenges at the component and system levels of industrial motor drive design concerning power, size, performance, reliability and safety. Modern motor drives are expected to drive more current while delivering high efficiency, reliability and accuracy with optimal high voltage protection. Broadcom has amassed a unique portfolio of products addressing various technical challenges faced by motor system designers today.
