Eric Cigan, MathWorks

In part 1, we demonstrate the flow from desktop simulation to prototyping for a six-step trapezoidal motor controller.  

  • Physical modeling of the brushless DC motor
  • Use of low-fidelity and high-fidelity Simulink models in simulation
  • Partitioning controller algorithms between the ARM core and programmable logic.

This video is part 1 of a three-part series demonstrating how MathWorks product support prototyping of motor controllers on Zynq SoCs.
