This webinar will demonstrate Hardware-in-the-Loop(HIL) simulation of a motor and inverter running on an FPGA at a time-step of 1 µs.  You will see how Simulink and HDL Coder generate floating-point HDL that runs in real time on Speedgoat target hardware using Simulink Real-Time.


Topics covered include:

  1. Review of a system level model of a motor and inverter in Simulink.
  2. Use of HDL Coder to generate floating-point HDL from the Simulink model to achieve a time-step of 1 µs
  3. Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation using Simulink Real-Time and Speedgoat target hardware

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
