Build Safe, Reliable Deterministic Motor Control Applications with Microsemi SoCs and FPGAs
Microsemi’s Deterministic Motor Control Solution is specially designed to meet the challenging requirements of performance, reliability, and safety in an easy-to-use environment. The solution is compliant with industry coding standards for developing safe and reliable software for embedded applications. Microsemi offers a modular intellectual property (IP) portfolio, tools, reference designs, kits, and software to control motors such as permanent-magnet synchronous motor (PMSM)/brushless DC (BLDC) and stepper motors.
Reference Design Features
Microsemi’s SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA based solution is ideal for developing high performance, reliable and secured dual-axis deterministic motor control applications. The solution has algorithms like Sensorless - FOC, FOC with HALL, FOC with Encoder and FOC with Resolver for PMSM/BLDC motors. The position control algorithm of stepper motor supports up to 1024 micro-steps. The SmartFusion2 deterministic motor control GUI allows for the dynamic tuning of parameters such as reference speed, Kp/Ki gains of PI controllers and viewing internal signals for debugging. The kit also supports various communication interfaces including Ethernet, CAN, RS485, USB, and others. SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs feature stronger design security than other FPGAs and include differential power analysis (DPA) resistant anti-tamper measures using technology licensed from Cryptography Research Incorporated (CRI). The security architecture was designed with a layered approach in mind, building on top of a foundation of secure hardware.
Microsemi offers modular IP portfolio, tools, reference designs, kits, and software for motors like PMSM/BLDC motors and stepper motors to meet the time-to-market needs for various segments. The rich library of IP provide for quick and easy implementation, optimized to leverage FPGA advantages. These IPs are available as MATLAB models and VHDL code for FPGA .
