Our products and systems increasingly use motor control systems to control e.g. tools, pumps, medical equipment, robots and industrial automation.

Several control applications are already developed on Embedded processor and DSP (Digital Signal Processor) platforms. However, for high-speed sensorless BLDC (Brushless DC) motor control application a transformation to an FPGA based embedded platform is preferred.

A class-D digital amplifier, based on Gallium-Nitride (GaN) technology, is already available and connected to an FPGA development platform. The assignment includes research, design and demonstration of an FPGA based sensorless BLDC Motor control system.

Existing DSP algorithms could be ported to the FPGA platform and extended to increase speed (rpm) and positioning accuracy. The assignment is completed with a demo application that demonstrates the capabilities of the motor control FPGA algorithm.
