The main aim of this paper is to test if FPGAs are able to achieve better position tracking performance than software-based soft real-time platforms. For comparison purposes, the same controller design was implemented in these architectures. A Multi-state Fuzzy Logic controller (FLC) was implemented both in a Xilinx(®) Virtex-II FPGA (XC2v1000) and in a(More)
As the performance requirements become more demanding and the plants become more and more complex, control designers were naturally forced to look beyond traditional linear control theory and attempt to find more advanced nonlinear methods. However, it has been very difficult to overcome the huge gap between the current knowledge, researched by the(More)
