May 01, 2016 by Power Pulse1595211359

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) will demonstrate a broad portfolio of innovative solutions that help engineers design safe, productive and energy efficient motor and power control systems, at the international PCIM 2016 show in Nuremberg. The visitors will find the ADI booth from 10-11 May in Hall 6, Booth 6-317.

ADI demonstrations at PCIM will include: Isolation Architectures in Motor Control – Multiple ADI iCoupler® isolation products will be demonstrated in; Isolated analog-to-digital conversion, Isolated gate drive, Signal isolation, Isolated board-to-board, and Backplane communication.

Understanding the impact of non-ideal effects in a motor drive – Using the ADSP-CM408 mixed-signal controller and a 400V PM-motor the demo shows how system performance is affected by non-ideal effects in the current loop.

Energy Harvesting, generation of low noise negative voltages and high efficient dc-dc conversion for process control – Analog Devices will present a multichannel data acquisition system for Ultra low power applications powered by ADP5090 energy harvesting Ultra low power boost regulator.

Safety Disconnector VDE-AR-N4105 – this is targeted at next generation applications including solar PV inverters, Solar+Storage and Electric Vehicle Infrastructure. The solution is integrated with other critical signal chain components, including shunt based Isolated Current Sensors and Isolated Gate Drivers. The TUV certification ensures integrated safety and allows for greater simplicity while providing a fully redundant second signal path with its innovative single chip dual independent core concept.

Highlights at the show also include a series of presentations by Analog Devices experts during the official conference and expert program: Isolated synchronous forward controller with integrated feedback loop and adjustable deadtime for high efficiency dc-dc converter – Dr.-Ing. Bernhard Strzalkowski, Product Applications Engineer, 10th May 14:00 - 15:30. Functional safety for integrated circuits used in variable speed drives – Tom Meany, System Applications Engineer, Functional Safety 10th May 15:30 - 17:30. A system approach to understanding the impact of non-ideal effects in a motor drive current loop – Jens Sorensen, System Applications Engineer, 10th May 15:30 - 17:30.

Another ADI expert will speak at the Open Forum: Position Feedback Technologies and Trends for Industrial Motor Control – Nicola O‘Byrne, 10th May 12:20 – 12:40
