On-Chip Delta-Sigma ADC for Rotor Positioning Sensor Application (Resolver-to-Digital Converter) 2014-01-0333

This paper discusses the RDC method utilizing delta-sigma analog-to-digital converter hardware module (DSADC) integrated in the Infineon's microcontroller family. With its higher resolution capability when compared to the regularly used ADC with successive-approximation (SAR), DSADC seems to have more potential. On the other hand, DSADC's inherent properties, such as asynchronous sampling rate and group delay, which when not handled properly, would have negative effects to the rotor positioning system. The solution to overcome those side-effects involves utilization of other internal microcontroller's resources such as timers and capture units, as well as additional software processing run inside CPU.
The rotor positioning system is first modeled and simulated in high-level simulation language environment (Matlab and Simulink) in order to predict the transient- and steady state behaviors. The group delay itself is obtained by simulating the model of DSADC module implementation. Comparison of simulation result is done to the measurement from motor test bench.
This paper also mentions some differences over two other existing approaches, i.e. a) the ADC-based software-RDC and b) the off-chip hardware RDC.
