App note: microcontrollers and triacs easily connected

micro_and_triac_connected

Here’s an application note from NXP on how to easily connect main triacs and microcontrollers.

This application note describes the easy connection of NXP LPC microcontrollers and three – quadrant (Hi-Com) triacs to control any resistive or inductive load at mains voltage. A one-for-all control method is presented that uses an innovative, patented, current zero-crossing detection method without need for a shunt resistor in the load current line.
