This document describes a recommended design flow that leverages an FPGA's adaptability, variable-precision DSP, and integrated system-level design tools for motor control designs. Designer's of industrial motor-driven equipment can take advantage of the performance, integration, and efficiency benefits of this design flow.
This white paper describes the use of FPGAs to deliver a multistandard Industrial Ethernet capability from a single PCB implementation. The benefits of FPGA implementation are described and an overview of the FPGA development flow, tools, and technology used to create a universal but easy-to-maintain solution is given.
This document describes using an industrial-grade FPGA as a coprocessor or system on a chip (SoC) to bring flexibility to industrial applications. Providing a single, highly integrated platform for multiple industrial products, FPGAs can substantially reduce development time and risk.
