What's a Synchro Converter?

A "Synchro Converter" is used to convert Synchro (or Resolver) "analog" shaft angle information to a "digital" angle format.  The "Synchro Converter", is often used as a generic term for a variety of similar Synchro/Resolver Conversion functions: 
  • Synchro to Digital Converter (S/D)
  • Resolver to Digital Converter (R/D)
  • Digital to Synchro Converter (D/S)
  • Digital to Resolver Converter (D/R)
Synchro Converters come in a variety of physical configurations including Module, Hybrid and Monolithic.  Hybrid and Module types provide more complete "Plug and Play" solutions, whereas the Monolithic (IC) type provides a "roll your own" solution requiring external components and signal conditioning circuitry to complete the converter system.
