Motor Controller Solution for BLDC, PMSM and AC Induction Motors
During our fulfilling journey of more than a decade in Automotive Industry, we have developed a robust ecosystem for delivering quality Motor Control design solutions.
This ecosystem consists of experienced Embedded Software and Hardware Engineers, Automotive Domain Experts and Industry Partners.
For more than 12 years, our focus area has always been Product Engineering Services (Embedded Software and Hardware design services). This has facilitated our team to develop in-depth expertise in Model Based Development and in delivering Functional Safety (ISO 26262) and AUTOSAR complaint solutions.
We have partnered with customers to develop electronic based motor control solutions for Electronic Power Steering (EPS), Seating Control, Smart Actuator for Turbo Chargers and other applications.

FAQs Regarding Motor Control System Development
Ans. Yes, we have deployed current protection modules in our previous designs for motor control system.
The first method is the low side current sensing also called the shunt method. Alternatively, we have also used resettable fuses in the system entry point in a way that it triggers during the over-current scenarios.
Ans. Yes, our team has the necessary skill-sets, automotive domain expertise and project experience for delivering an AUTOSAR complaint Motor Control Solution.
We have integrated robust and production grade versions of third party stacks like BSW and RTE software for AUTOSAR projects in the past.
Our team will collaborate with you to develop the Automotive Application as per AUTOSAR compliance. We will also support in development of MCAL and CDD modules
Ans. Yes. We have a team of ISO26262 functional safety experts that will work with the motor control development team to ensure ASIL compliance.
We provide support for every aspect of the Functional Safety Lifecycle and also perform FMEA, HARA, and hardware FMEDA for motor control systems.
We have worked with leading Automotive Suppliers and OEMs’ for ASIL compliance of a motor control ECUs’ in the past.
Ans. Yes, we do provide all the required support for integration of motor control system at production level. If you require, our experts will visit on-site for a seamless integration.
Ans. Our team has been working on multiple projects, where we are developing software solutions for global production programs of Electric Vehicles.
For such engagements, we have been partnering with customers for design of Motor Control Hardware and Software modules for Electric Vehicle programs in Asia, US and Europe.
Ans. We have successfully delivered motor control solution designs based on various microcontroller families including NXP/Freescale, Renesas, Microchip, Fujitsu and TI. We also have BSPs and communication stacks readily available for these platforms.
The choice of MCU to be used rests with the customers, however, we also provide consultation to help you choose the most suitable platform.
Ans. A few of the diagnostics features that we have implemented in our motor control system projects include:
- Short protection like short to GND, Short to VBAT and Open Circuit
- Based on any diagnostic errors, Drive circuit is completely OFF or Limited Drive controlled by Software.
Based upon the specific requirements of the project, we also add more diagnostics features.
Ans. Yes. We have developed sensor-less BLDC motor systems for a few of our customers. From development to integration, we have provided end to end support in sensor less motor control development.
