Field-Oriented Control with Position Sensor Accelerated Application

by: AMD

Sensor-based control is a key component of many motor system implementations. In the context of brushless DC motors, field-oriented control (FOC) stands as a significant control methodology. The Field-Oriented Control with Position Sensor Accelerated Application from AMD utilizes the Vitis™ Motor Control Library to offer deterministic and low-latency control of synchronous motors. The system integrates quadrature encoder, DC voltage, and current readings to ensure precise speed and torque control over the target motors.

Adaptive Computing in Robotics

Demand for robotics is accelerating rapidly. Building a robot that is designed to be safe and secure and can operate alongside humans is difficult enough. But getting these technologies working together can be even more challenging. Complicating matters is the addition of machine learning and artificial intelligence, which is making it more difficult to keep up with computational demands.

Roboticists are turning toward adaptive computing platforms, which offer lower latency and deterministic, multi-axis control with built-in safety and security features on an integrated, adaptable platform that is expandable for the future. Read the eBook to learn more.
