Peripheral of the month - Fan Controller
The Fan Controller component enables designers to quickly and easily develop fan controller solutions using PSoC. The component is a system-level solution that encapsulates all necessary hardware blocks including PWMs, tachometer input capture timer, control registers, status registers and a DMA controller reducing development time and effort.
The PSoC Fan Controller Component can control up to 16 independent 4-wire DC fans. Because the design is done in hardware, the cooling system will run even when the CPU is in a sleep mode or better even, the CPU can handle other real-time critical events while the fans are controlled via a hardware control loop.
