Modular approach for an ASIC integration of electrical drive controls


Departement de Physique, Université d'Orléans


VLSI circuits design allows today to consider new modes of implementation for electrical controls. However, design techniques require an adaptation effort that few designers, too accustomed to the software approach, provide. The authors of this article propose to develop a methodology to guide the electrical designers towards optimal performances of control algorithms implementation. Thus, they were based on two concepts: modular design and algorithm architecture adequation. An exemple of DTC control implemented in an ASIC circuit is presented and the results of the integration performances valide our methodology.
