Jerk monitoring, defined as the first derivative of acceleration, has become a major issue in computerized numeric controlled (CNC) machines. Several works highlight the necessity of measuring jerk in a reliable way for improving production processes. Nowadays, the computation of jerk is done by finite differences of the acceleration signal, computed at the(More)
Nowadays industry pays much attention to prevent failures that may interrupt production with severe consequences in cost, product quality, and safety. The most-analyzed parameters for monitoring dynamic characteristics and ensuring correct functioning of systems are electric current, voltage, and vibrations. System-on-chip (SoC) design is an approach to(More)
Singular value decomposition (SVD) allows the factorization of real or complex matrices providing quantitative information with fewer dimensions along which data points exhibit more variation. These days SVD computation is being used in numerous applications, and because of its importance, different approaches for SVD hardware computation have been(More)
Recent developments on programmable logic technology had promoted the microprocessor design task from big companies targeting the mass market to the every day designer as intellectual property (IP) cores toward the system on-a-chip (SOC) approach. This paper shows the VHDL IP 8-bit CISC microprocessor core development which is intended as an open core for(More)
This paper shows the development of a 1024-point radix-4 FFT VHDL core for applications in hardware signal processing, targeting low-cost FPGA technologies. The developed core is targeted into a Xilinxreg Spartantrade -3 XC3S200 FPGA with the inclusion of a VGA display interface and an external 16-bit data acquisition system for performance evaluation(More)
Power quality monitoring is a theme in vogue and accurate frequency measurement of the power line is a major issue. This problem is particularly relevant for power generating systems since the generated signal must comply with restrictive standards. The novelty of this work is the development of a smart sensor for real-time high-resolution frequency(More)
Accurate monitoring on induction motors is mandatory for modern industry in order to guarantee the overall process quality. The common practice for monitoring is performed by third party enterprises that test the electrical machines with general-purpose instrumentation equipment, which do not allow on-line operation with the subsequent increase in(More)
