Based on modern application areas such as power electronics and motor control, this webinar will introduce Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP). We will use Simulink Real-Time, HDL Coder and advanced FPGA target hardware and CPU to perform rapid control prototyping.
We will demonstrate how you can go beyond software-only simulation, to quickly and efficiently test your Simulink control designs in real time while connecting to hardware. We’ll look closely at a brushless motor control example and demonstrate power electronics rapid prototyping using Simulink Real-Time with Speedgoat hardware. You will see how a controls or test engineer can easily configure and run the controller algorithm on a real-time target computer and communicate through high-speed I/O interfaces to power electronics, sensors, and the motor. The new Speedgoat Mobile real-time target machine, leveraging CPU and FPGA subsystem technology, is used for controller prototyping with Simulink Real-Time.
The techniques shown during this presentation cross over into many applications where you are trying to develop high quality software algorithms quickly that will eventually be embedded into a product.
