Additionally, several Plug-In Modules (PIMs) were introduced today for Microchip's Explorer 16 Development Board and motor-control development kits, including the dsPICDEM[TM] MCHV
(part # DM330023), dsPICDEM MCLV (part # DM330021) and dsPICDEM MCSM (part # DM330022) kits.
The new dsPICDEM[TM] MCHV Development System is the industry's only development tool for the rapid evaluation and design of a wide variety of high-voltage, closed-loop motor control applications using AC Induction Motors (ACIMs), Brushless DC (BLDC) motors or Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSMs).
