Electric Power Steering (EPS)  Favorite


Overview

Electric Power Steering (EPS) is favored over hydraulic power steering in most new vehicles. EPS offers:

  • Reduced weight and improved fuel economy
  • Greater handling and steering feel
  • Improved vehicle safety

The central electronic elements of today's electric power steering systems are modern 16- and 32-bit MCUs designed for safety-critical applications.

Freescale's 16-bit and MPC5xxx 32-bit single and dual-core MCU provide enhanced computing power and specialized peripherals for complex electric motor control functions.
