Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA Motor Control Development Kit

Print Friendly

High demands are being placed on motors used for industrial automation, consumer electronics, medical diagnostics and robotics. Xilinx FPGAs deliver the performance and integration required to execute complex motor control algorithms, increased efficiency, integration and custom safety features, often outside of the capabilities of traditional MCUs.
The Avnet Spartan®-6 FPGA Motor Control Development Kit is an ideal platform for designers seeking to experiment with proven reference designs and develop custom control integrated with flexible peripheral functions like Ethernet, PowerLink and PCI Express. The Motor FMC module implements Texas Instruments integrated motor drivers and high precision Delta-Sigma modulators for voltage and current sense. Designers also have the option to use the Xilinx XADC integrated 12-bit data converter available in new 7 Series devices for the ultimate integrated design. A prototyping area for experimenting with alternate front end circuitry is also provided. Stepper, Brushed DC (BDC), Brushless DC (BLDC), and Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSM) can be driven by the FMC module, under control of the Spartan-6 LX75T FPGA on the baseboard. The included reference designs provide great demonstrations and starting points for your own design.
