The PAC5532 belongs to Active-Semi’s Power Application Controller® (PAC®) family. The PAC® family of products are highly-optimized SOC devices that can implement BLDC or PMSM programmable motor controller and driver in a single integrated IC. The PAC5532 integrates an Arm® Cortex®-M4F FLASH-based MCU, Power Management, High-side and low-side Gate Drivers and Signal-Conditioning components in a single product.

The PAC5532 is optimized for 48V to 120V battery-powered BLDC applications such as garden tools or battery-powered bikes and scooters.

Integrated Signal Chain Allows integrated current, voltage and temperature sensing and protection using integrated Differential and Single-ended Programmable-Gain Amplifiers, comparators and DACs. Cycle-by-cycle current limit without MCU intervention
Lowest Standby Power 19 µA Iq for standby-mode
IEC/UL60730 Class B Optimization Allows implementation of the IEC/UL60730 Class B standard without additional system cost for PCB components

PAC5532EVK1

Active-Semi’s PAC5532EVK1 Evaluation Kit (EVK) is a complete hardware solution enabling users to evaluate and develop motor control applications around this powerful and versatile Arm® Cortex®M4F based micro-controller. The module contains the PAC5532 Power Application Controller (MCU), MOSFET inverter and debugging headers for serial interfaces and GPIO signals that may be used for debugging and evaluation.

The PAC5532EVK1 can be used with Active-Semi’s BLDC/BEMF or FOC firmware and Windows GUI for evaluation and debugging of the application. The ET-COLINK-1 may be used for connecting the EVK to a Windows PC using a USB cable, for programming and debugging using an IDE. The ET-UARTISO-1 may be used for connecting the Windows PC to the device’s UART for the Windows GUI.

Supporting Evaluation Tools

The ET-UARTSWD adapter is the preferred adapter for evaluation of PAC® devices/firmware and combines a USB to UART adapter with SWD debugger connector adaptation into a single board with isolation. The ET-UARTISO-1 adapter provides only the USB to UART adapter with isolation for Active-Semi application GUI communications.

ET-UARTSWD

The ET-UARTSWD isolated communications and debugging interface unifies two modules into one. Previously, interfacing a PC Computer to any of Active-Semi’s PAC5xxx Evaluation Modules required one module to enable UART based serial communications and a second module to allow for in-system debugging and FLASH memory programing.
