    Improve Speed of photovoltaic based Solid State Relay

    I am in the process of creating a High power Mosfet based SSR. The idea is using a photovoltaic MOSFET driver such as VO1263 (SIlabs have similar IC but it uses CMOS coupling to create the isolated power). However these type of ICs are pretty slow since they provide about 10uA of drive current...

    Is Axial Gap (pancake) motor better for servo drive applications

    I heard from someone that axial gap /pancake motors (lynch or etek) are better for servo control ( speed and position ) than standard radial flux DC motors. both motors are brushed type . I donot really understand the physics behind this claim , although i know how each one operate. So can...

    Implementation of BiSS C interface for an encoder

    BiSS C DB3 protocol interface for Absolute encoder is Open Source and Free Communication protocol hardware compatible with SSI interface. And it is used widely in absolute position encoders. However searching for sample codes and implementations yields zero results. Most BiSS master are Closed...

    Various types of dc motors for traction application

    i am doing a research on which motor is better suited for Small EV or kart conversion using a fixed gear (single stage). the options available are : PMDC , SepEx , Series , BLDC . ( No ac motors ) I have found so many information regarding BLDC motors and their advantages , but no useful info...

    boost output current of IR2184

    I am using the IR21844 in half bridge configuration , now i have to modify the circuit for a larger mosfet (2500nC gate charge total) , i would like to boost the output current into 4-5A ( from the original 1.4A) and keeping the same Driver since i donot want to change the logic side of the...

    [SOLVED] H bridge driving method for servo control ?

    i have been working sometime with servo control (position and speed) of brushed dc motor in the KW range . Traditionally i am using locked antiphase (50% duty =zero speed) as i read it is better for controlling the motor . i am sensing motor current in both directions to operate in 4 quadrant ...

    TVS uni vs bidirection in this circuit

    Hello Guys i have used this circuit (i found online last year) to drive big dc motors without much thinking but with great success but yesterday i noticed something , there are 3 TVS (from each motor terminal to GND, and from VCC to GND) BUT THEY ARE BIDIRECTIONAL now i am thinking , isn't...

    [SOLVED] generate isolated dc-dc converter for gate drive

    hello guys i want to use a mosfet as a high side switch ( instead of a relay) there is no fast switching (of duty cycle) just 0 or 1 , just ON/OFF each couple of seconds . to turn on the high side mosfet , you need about 12-15v between gate and source . but i am using a micro-controller or...
