BLDC fan motor drive - low cost FOC sensorless solution
A growing number of applications rely on a brushless DC (BLDC) motor. Applications can be found in medical equipment, home appliances, building controls, industrial automation etc. Comparing with other motors, the BLDC motor shows advantages as higher efficiency, smaller motor size, lighter weight, longer lifetime, no maintenance and no sparking.

DEMO_100W_BLDC - Low cost FOC sensorless demo board with CoolMOS™ CE
The 100W BLDC fan motor drive demo board comes with 220VAC input and a 100W max. input power in a 3-phase half bridge topology. Featuring the CoolMOS™ CE IPD60R650CE (600V, 650mΩ) in DPAK package as the main power switch, IR2301 as gate driver, and the microcontroller XMC1302 (ARM® Cortex®-M0).
The board does not only offer a sync rec algorithm to reduce reverse current hard communication stress and sensorless field orientated BLDC control (FOC), but also a minimum BoM reduction of 10% compared to IPM or IGBT. The test results show that the design is stable, and that the CoolMOS™ CE still has enough voltage and current margins.
