Efficient Motor Control Designs with Intel® FPGAs and SoC FPGAs

Motors and drives power countless industrial processes in production, assembly, packaging, robotics, computer numerical control (CNC), machine tools, pumps, and industrial fans. These motor-driven systems account for more than two-thirds of industrial energy consumption, making their efficient operations vital to factory profits.

Designing motor control and motion control systems with Intel® FPGAs and SoC FPGAs can result in significant reduction in overall cost of ownership through:

  • System Integration: Lower bill of materials (BOM), power consumption, and reliability challenges by integrating industrial networking, functional safety, encoder, and power stage interfaces and digital signal processing (DSP) control algorithms in a single device.
  • Scalable Performance: Use a single scalable platform across entire product lines. Achieve higher performance with faster and more advanced deterministic control loops.
  • Functional Safety: Reduce compliance time and effort. Intel was the first FPGA supplier to obtain qualification of our devices and tools under the Machinery Directive safety standard IEC 61508.
