Alizem Embedded Motor Control Software IP for Servo Drives applications is meant to be quickly, easily and safely integrated into Altera MAX10 FPGA-based motor drive systems. Its design is based on standard field-oriented (FOC) / vector motor control method with space vector PWM (SVPWM) and it can be used for torque, speed or position motor control applications.


    Device Utilization and Performance

    Roughly 3k LES (FPGA) and 60kb of memory (NIOS II processor) per axis on MAX10 device.

    Getting Started

    1- Download datasheet and qualify for FREE demo on Alizem website. 2- Make sure to download Alizem FREE ebook on "How to design a custom electric motor drive using COTS components".
