Engineers at the Texas Instruments Military Semiconductors division in Sherman, Texas, are introducing a military digital signal processor built around the company`s C2000 programmable TMS320 DSP core. The device, which complies with the MIL-PRF-38535 Qualified Manufacturing Line standard, enables designers to use modern control algorithms that support a motor-industry trend toward improved control of brushless motors. The device, the SMJ320F240HFPM40, comes in a 132-pin ceramic quad flatpack package. It integrates a motor-control event manager that enables the device to control electronically commutated motors efficiently. Designers can order the device under the SMD number 5962-9861201 QXA. It costs $125.89 in lots of 100. For more information, contact Texas Instruments on the World Wide Web at http://www.ti.com/. —
