Active-Semi® Enables SUMEC Intelligent Garden Tools with Highly Optimized Integrated Power Application Controller®
SUMEC (www.sumectools.com ) announced today the launch of a high power garden tool series using a powerful brushless DC (BLDC) motor. The design uses Dallas, TX-based Active-Semi® (active-semi.com ) Power Application Controller® (PAC® ) for the BLDC motor control.

The PAC® Family of devices is optimized for BLDC motors and enables Back-EMF and Field Oriented Control (FOC) algorithms that can be implemented with or without Hall sensors. The PAC® devices contain a mix of digital control and integrated analog components that provides an optimal motor control solution. Only the power MOSFETs or IGBT’s are external. This enables flexible scaling of power and a space optimized direct control architecture of the motor.
“As a subsidiary of Fortune Global 500 ranked Corp SINOMACH, SUMEC continues to look for disruptive technology in motor controllers to create exceptional value for our customers.
“Active-Semi® impressed us with their all-inclusive PAC® IC architecture integrating high-voltage gate drivers, configurable AFE, power management and ARM® Cortex core along with additional versatile peripherals. This enables our high-performance, highly reliable tool design with the smallest footprint,” says Guoyang Zhou, Head of Electronics Development at SUMEC. “We look forward to leveraging this scalable architecture across more of our products, as we strive to deliver the best to our customers.”
“SUMEC’s continuous innovation and product improvements strengthen our position as a leading global total-solution provider. Our Brands include GForce and Yard Force in the outdoor power equipment, power tools, and related industries.
“We are excited about the global market release of SUMEC’s garden tools with our PAC® motor control IC,” says Bernd Krafthoefer, Director of Marketing at Active-Semi® . “Our Power Application Controller® with its optimized high level of integration, available firmware libraries and safety features offers the best single-IC motor control solutions in today’s market. PAC® is being utilized in a variety of battery and AC powered equipment including garden tools, handheld power tools, washing machines, refrigerators and drones to name a few.”
PAC® ICs are supporting applications up to 600V; they are in high volume production and are available at major distributors worldwide.
