Solution Type: 


Alizem 3-phase PWM IP Core is meant to be easily, quickly and safely integrated into an Intel® MAX® 10 FPGA for use in many inverter-based (DC-AC) power electronics applications: pump and fan electric motor control, solar power conversion and power supplies. It is the first building block of any control system meant to drive a 3-phase 2-level inverter (6 switches) or intelligent power module (IPM).


    Device Utilization and Performance

    Each instantiation is taking under than 100LEs on MAX 10 FPGA. Complete reference design (including NIOS II processor) is under 2300 LEs, i.e. fits on the smallest MAX10 FPGAs.

    Getting Started

    1- Download datasheet for FREE on Alizem website: 2- Choose version (demo, low-volume, IoT or source code) and download the software directly from the website. 3- At the same time, you can download Alizem ebooks on custom electric motor drive design and MAX 10-based embedded system design.
