AN66627 demonstrates how to quickly and easily develop four-wire brushless DC fan control systems using PSoC® 3 or PSoC 5LP. The Fan Controller Component, available in PSoC Creator™, helps manage the fans in a variety of configurations. This application note also shows how to combine fan control and temperature sensing to create a complete thermal management solution using PSoC 3 and PSoC 5LP.

The projects provided with this application note use the Fan Controller component provided as part of PSoC Creator 3.0 Component Pack 7 software. The software is available for download at http://www.cypress.com/psoccreator/.
