1.Resolver to digital converters Overview

The HSDC14596 series of high-precision, hi-rel resolver to digital converters are a class of high-precision, hi-rel, small-volume, low-power hybrid integrated electronics. The function of the device in the platform inertial navigation system is to convert the angle analog signal output by the synchronous machine or the resolver into a 16-bit parallel binary digital fish output, so that the computer can measure the physical parameters such as angle and displacement, and realizes the system, and reach the target.

Resolver to digital converter is the key component of analog-to-digital conversion in the platform inertial servo system. Its technical indicators directly affect the system performance, especially the product with 16-bit resolution, 1.3-point conversion accuracy, and RIPCLK zero-signal output, BT Fault detection signal output, and a maximum 60° phase adaptive function. The domestic military units have always relied on imported DDC products, and the cycle and price are restricted.

3. Resolver to digital converters Key technologies

3.1 Resolver to digital converters Front-end signal processing circuit design

This part is composed of an electronic SCOTT converter or an isolation amplifier, which functions to isolate the input analog angle and convert it into two precision orthogonal signals Vs and Vc, and simultaneously convert the excitation signal into a phase-phase processing control signal. The front-end signal processing circuit must have a large common-mode rejection ratio to accommodate the input of AC signals such as 11.8V, 26V, and 115V. At the same time, to ensure the high precision of the converter, the coverage of the Vs and Vc signals must be strictly matched. The error caused by the mismatch must be less than 0.33. The design principles and methods are described as follows:

Synchronous machine signal: V(S3-S1)= Vsinθsinωt

V(S1-S2)= Vsin(θ-120°)sinωt

V(S2-S3)= Vsin(θ-240°)sinωt

(V=KVm; Vm is the synchronous machine reference voltage input, K is the synchronous machine reference input and signal output voltage ratio)

The circuit design is as follows:

When: V(S2-S3)= Vsin(θ-240°)sinωt

= V(sinθcos240°- cosθsin240°) sinωt

= V(-sinθcos60°+ cosθsin60°) sinωt

= V( cosθ- sinθ) sinωt

So:  V(S2-S3)+ V(S3-S1)

= V( cosθ- sinθ+ sinθ)sinωt

= V cosθsinωt

The design circuit is as follows:

Figure 3 Electronic SCOTT schematic

R1=R2=R3; R4=R5=R6; R7=(1+)R8; R9=R10

Available: VS= Vsinθsinωt

VC= Vcosθsinωt

For the resolver signal: V(S3-S1)= Vsinθsinωt

V(S2-S4)= Vcosθsinωt

The circuit is designed as a differential amplifier structure.

In order to ensure the conversion accuracy of the circuit, the resistor R1~R9 adopts ECRIM’s thin film resistor network process design, and the proportional accuracy of the resistor pair is required to be ≤0.01%. The actual use certificate fully meets the requirements of the indicator.

3.2 Resolver to digital converters 64-sector function generator circuit design

The sector function generator circuit is the key to ensure high-precision conversion of products. This project has designed a 64-sector function generator, and the linear approximation method is directly used in the sector. The method has high theoretical precision and the theoretical error is 5 seconds.

The key to this design is to form a 64-part boundary function. The design principles and methods are described below.

The basic expression of the sector function is:

(1) VK=VOsin(θ-K×11.25°)sin(ωt+α)

The following simplified expression is sin(θ-K×11.25°),其中K∈{0,31}

According to the trigonometric function relationship:

(2) sinA+sinB=2sin(A+B)/2 • cos(A-B)/2

Then the function generation method is as follows:

The sector function input signal is:

VS=Vosinθsin(ωt+α)                          (3)

VC=Vocosθsin(ωt+α)                          (4)

(Simplified expression is sinθ、cosθ)

sinθ is generated by the inverter,:

-sinθ,that is sin(θ-180°)= sin(θ-11.25°×16)

-cosθ,that is sin(θ-90°)=  sin(θ-11.25°×8)

The adder is used to form a sector function, and the sector circuit is shown in FIG 4.

Figure 4 sector circuit

If A= sinθ, B= sin(θ-180°), the input circuit makes R2 / R1=1/ cos 45°-1,R3=R4

Then the sin(θ-11.25°×4)can be obtained at the C terminal.

If A= sin(θ-45°),B= sin(θ-90°), the input circuit makes R2 / R1=1/ cos 22.5°-1,R3=R4

Then the sin(θ-11.25°×6)can be obtained at the C terminal.

By analogy, a block diagram of the 32-layer function boundary-partitioning sector function circuit is formed by mutual cascading inside the sector function circuit.

Figure 5 block diagram of the block function

This part of the circuit consists of a precision resistor network, an analog switch array and several operational amplifiers.

The sector control logic circuit is performed with a corresponding angular code (binary number) of five digits as the analog switch array strobe logic required by the sector function circuit. The sector control logic circuit is composed of two four-choice analog switches, five two-select analog switches and one logic code control unit, and is designed as an analog switch array dedicated chip, as shown in FIG 6

Figure 6 analog switch array

3.3 Resolver to digital converters error formation circuit design

After the boundary function voltage is generated, it is multiplied by the original code and the complement of the digital angle in the sector, and then summed to form an error voltage Δ. The circuit can be designed as a dedicated chip for the R-2R 10 bit original complement multiplies DAC. Another circuit conversion can be realized with a general-purpose DAC.

Known previously: △V =[A2 sin(θ-A1-φ0)+ A2补sin(θ-A1)]

Let sin(θ-A1-φ0)=X;sin(θ-A1)=Y

Then △V = A2X+ A2补Y

= A2X+(1-A2)Y

=(X-Y)A2 +Y

Therefore, the design circuit can be obtained as shown in Figure 7:

Figure 7 error voltage forming circuit

The resistors used in the entire sector function generator and error-forming circuit are designed using a thin film resistor network process to ensure product conversion accuracy.

3.4 Resolver to digital converters Bipolar Voltage Controlled Oscillator Circuit Design

To meet the technical requirements of ±10V angular velocity VEL voltage output at ±2.5 rpm, a bipolar voltage controlled oscillator must be designed to meet the specifications.

The design of the voltage controlled oscillator is based on the principle of the charge flat street method, that is, the charge is equal to the discharge charge in the discharge time T1 in one oscillation cycle time. The discharge charge is generated by the internal constant current source Ii, and the discharge time T1 is generated by the monostable timing circuit, and the charging current is generated by the ratio of the input voltage V to the input resistance Ri. Let’s look at Figure 8:

Figure 8 integrator schematic


So the integrator oscillation frequency F=

It can be seen that when T1 and I1 are constant values, F is proportional to Vi.

The bipolar voltage controlled oscillator circuit is composed of a threshold voltage window comparator, a double one-stable circuit and a hysteresis comparator circuit. The voltage comparator generates a falling edge triggering one-shot circuit to generate a BUSY pulse and a LATCH pulse god; the one-shot circuit can receive an external auxiliary inhibit signal INHIBIT, prohibiting the generation of the LATCH pulse; the hysteresis comparator generates a logic level DIR, and the control 16 The count direction of the bit reversible counter. This circuit is designed as a dedicated chip for voltage controlled oscillators.

In order to ensure high linearity of the V/F conversion, the resistance and capacitance of the integrator require a small temperature drift.

3.5 Resolver to digital converters Broadband Phase Adaptive Circuit Design

The phase adaptive circuit is a key circuit to ensure the dynamic tracking accuracy of the product when there is a phase shift condition between the signal and the reference. Referring to foreign data, the design scheme of the circuit is: the reference signal generates a switching signal with the same phase, and the input signal itself generates a control pulse, controls the phase shift of the switching signal, and finally generates a phase-detecting signal that is in phase with the input signal.

Since the sine or cosine signals generated by the front-end SCOTT transformation have a small amplitude and cannot meet the input threshold voltage required for the comparator output reversal, the summing circuit of the sine and cosine signals should be designed to ensure the output amplitude. value.

Known previously: VS= Vsinθsinωt

VC= Vcosθsinωt

Available: VS+VC =V(sinθ+ cosθ)sinωt

= Vsin(θ + 45°) sinωt

Therefore, a larger signal amplitude at sinωt≠0 is obtained.

To design this circuit, the signals of the sine and cosine signals in the first quadrant must be summed by the high two bits of the output digital code based on the polarity of the sine and cosine signals.

In order to improve the working bandwidth of the phase adaptive circuit, it is necessary to design a reference signal 90° phase shifting circuit with a frequency range of 50~2600Hz. The output is sent to the input end of the D flip-flop, and the zero-pulse control is generated by the signal itself to generate the correct Phase switching signal. Here is Figure 9:

Figure 9 Broadband phase adaptive circuit block diagram

3.6  Resolver to digital converters fault self-diagnosis circuit design

This circuit is used to detect internal and external line faults in the converter product and to output a BIT signal (active low). If the externally-assisted synchronous machine signal line or the excitation signal line is broken, or a component in the internal circuit fails, the converter cannot track the change of the input analog angle normally.

The circuit is designed to take the amplified AC error, and after full-wave rectification and filtering, it is sent to the input end of the Schmitt inverter 54LS14, and the output is the required fault self-diagnosis prompt.

Therefore, a larger signal amplitude at sint0 is obtained.

The design of the circuit is:

When the converter is normally tracked within the accuracy range, its 1LSB AC error is:


When the effective value of Vs is 2V; the error gain is K=136; the mode is RA=10.2; when n=16

ΔV =136×2×10.2× =260mV

After full-wave rectification and filtering, the DC error of 1SB is: =234 mV

When the converter's abnormal tracking error reaches 60 LSBs, the DC error is 1.4V, that reaching the positive threshold voltage of the Schmitt inverter 54LS14, and causing its output level to be inverted. When the DC error is less than 0.9V, at the threshold voltage, the output returns to a high level, so that BIT is high when the power is normally tracked, and BIT is low when the tracking is not normal.
