Electric Power Steering (EPS) offers improved handling and steering feel while improving vehicle safety by adopting the steering torque to the vehicle speed and providing active torque in critical driving situations.
Our 16-bit and 32-bit single and dual-core automotive MCUs provide enhanced computing power and specialized peripherals for complex electric motor control functions. Integrated power supply solutions are also important elements of a power steering control unit. They provide connectivity to automotive busses, such as CAN and LIN. For MOSFET power stages control, integrated pre-drivers are typically used to interface with the MCU directly or via SPI.
