Digital Control Technology: Raising Power's Added Value With High-Speed Digital Control!


 With "environment" as the key word, automobile manufacturers are competing fiercely to develop cars with superior fuel efficiency. These eco-cars need efficient and reliable converters. We have employed DSP control ICs. They allow us to develop digital control products whose characteristics are not affected by temperature changes or age.

 Our digital control system achieves high-speed control and added value by going from the old system of analog feedback control to our unique switching power algorithm.
(The Advantages of Digital Control)
1) Cuts the number of parts
2) Can maintain or improve reliability, without age deterioration
3) Easy to add high added value (can even control communication functions, etc., besides power)
4) Makes controls unfeasible with analog control possible (predictive control, self-learning functions, etc.)
