    Hi,
    We are trying to develop a DSP controlled DC to AC inverter. We want to synchronize the output of our inverter with a 10 V ac network. On the input (DC) side we will connect low power wind turbines or solar cells (< 100 W). Can anyone recommend what type of DSP or microcontroller we could use? I have been looking into Freescale semiconductors. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Don

    Pretty much any DSP or micro will do the job. It is all the other stuff around it that will make it work. Also the software/firmware. Find one that you are comfortable working with and build on that.

    The dsPIC30F series is cheap, and has a SMPS/PWM controller built in on most ICs.

    Depends on your budget, but ti have an app note out with code and schematics IIRC for a very similar application with solar cells, they use the f280 dsp. A free version of the TI f280 tools is available, minus the RTOS/BIOS. Development boards and the full toolset dont come cheap from TI though.
