Standard servo drives available in the market, which consist of microcontrollers or digital signal processors (DSPs), could not achieve extremely high demands on regulation accuracy. This joint paper by ARADEX and Altera examines the advantages of using FPGA technology in high-precision servo drives compared to standard solutions based on microcontrollers or DSPs. This paper also describes Altera’s FPGA capability to execute many processes in parallel for complex systems without increasing the cycle time. Find out how FPGAs in servo drives enable high synchronicity between the controller and inverter modules.
