DDC’s New Resolver-to-Digital Converters Offer 3V or 5V I/O Compatibility!

DDC announces the introduction of its RD-19231 Series of 16-bit Resolver-to-Digital (R/D) Converters, which offer 3.3V or 5V compatibility and are designed for high performance aerospace, defense, industrial, and commercial positioning systems. The RD-19231, contained in a small 64-pin plastic quad flat pack (10 mm x 10 mm), is a drop in replacement to all RD-19230 legacy designs, and replacement requires no modification of the Printed Circuit Board (PCB). This single SOI CMOS monolithic chip merges precision analog circuitry with digital logic to form a complete high performance tracking R/D converter with accuracy up to 1 arc minute. For convenience and flexibility, the RD-19231 offers user programmable encoder emulation, resolution, bandwidth, tracking rate, velocity scaling and a new selectable I/O voltage output of 5V or 3.3V. Furthermore, an internal encoder emulation feature (with independent resolution control) enables the RD-19231 to emulate incremental optical encoder output signals, so that new encoder based systems can now easily interface with a resolver output. 


  • 3.3V or 5V I/O voltage output
  • Drop-in replacement to the legacy RD-19230 Series
  • Analog component eliminates need for DO-178 re-certification
  • Small footprint
  • Single chip converter
  • Programmable bandwidth and velocity output
  • Scalable to your application needs
  • Encoder emulation to replace an encoder with a rugged resolver

Motor Controller LRUs for Evolving Electromechanical Actuation Demands

The design and development of electromechanical actuation (EMA) equipment requires OEMs to continuously tweak their designs to comply with evolving system requirements and growing demands for increased torque, speed and number of actuation cycles. Often, even a small increase in electromechanical actuator drive capability requires an increase in the size of the brushless DC motors, along with various modifications to the motor controller techniques utilized. Mechanical and electrical parameters can be fine-tuned to ensure optimal system performance. For instance, a small change in an aircraft’s wing design may cause drastic changes in its actuation power requirements, which may cascade into significant changes throughout the EMA system design.

Addressing Power Management Challenges on Military Aircraft and Ground Vehicles with Solid-State Power Controllers

The rapid growth in electronic system complexity on military platforms presents challenges for developers in the areas of electrical power distribution, load management, status monitoring, safety, and reliability. It has become difficult for traditional methods of power distribution, based on discrete electromechanical devices, to keep pace with growing system complexity, while meeting strict size and weight limitations. These challenges are magnified by the need for sophisticated power management policies such as load shedding, redundancy, and power sequencing.
