Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), a global leader in high-performance signal processing technology, launched today a mixed-signal control processor that integrates the industry’s only embedded dual 16-bit A/D converter with up to 14 bits of accuracy together with a 240-MHz floating-point ARM ® Cortex ™-M4 processor core. Equipment manufacturers require highly accurate, closed-loop control in servo, motor-drive, solar photo-voltaic (PV) inverter and other embedded industrial applications to improve the energy efficiency and performance of their products. The higher precision analog conversion of the ADSP-CM40x achieves these goals.

Forty percent of the world’s electric power is consumed by electric motors, and demand for higher levels of factory automation is driving the need for greater industrial-motor power efficiency and performance.
“Developers of industrial drives are demanding lower power consumption, less torque ripple and more precise speed control. This together with higher precision analog conversion within the closed-loop control scheme is the key enabling technology,” said Hong Wu, general manager, Googol Technology, a leading maker of motor drives and motion controls for Asian markets. “The ADSP-CM40x is the best processor for offering the level of mixed-signal performance required in future industrial motor drives.”
