How to Build Custom Motor Controllers for Zynq SoCs with MATLAB and Simulink
Matt Brown, Avnet Electronics
Join engineers from MathWorks and Avnet® Electronics Marketing who will show you how to use MATLAB® and Simulink® to model, simulate and prototype control systems on Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC devices.
Many designers are adopting SoC FPGA devices to integrate processor and FPGA functions on a single device, reducing system power, cost, and board size. The complexity implementing algorithms on SoCs, however, creates a challenge for algorithm developers, software developers and hardware designers.
During our webinar presentation, we will demonstrate how to:
- Model and simulate motor control systems to evaluate controller designs before testing in hardware.
- Generate code to program control algorithms into a Zynq-7020.
- Use a new MathWorks IP core generation workflow to rapidly create IP cores that implement high-speed I/O processing and offload math-intensive tasks to the FPGA fabric.
- Download programming and prototype motor control algorithms using the Avnet Zynq Intelligent Drives Kit II.
