Several projects in the big world of embedded systems require real-time solutions. Even a simple buck/boost DC (direct current) converter requires a fast and accurate control loop, timing requirements for 3-phase BLDC (brushless DC) controllers are much stricter. Parallel processing of high-speed data streams is also a complicated task for stock CPUs. Designing specialized hardware instead of using a stock CPU is usually the only way to satisfy requirements for a real-time task. Concept Reply outlines different hardware solutions, highlights advantages and disadvantages and provides helpful hints for a successful Hardware project.
After the architectural decision is complete, development starts, focusing on the FPGA development process, as it is slightly different in comparison with the traditional MCU development.
The FPGA world is vast. In many parallelable tasks, FPGAs are far ahead of the traditional CPUs in terms of power efficiency, processing speed and reaction time. A combination of FPGA and CPU can simplify the implementation of the most complex tasks while keeping the design highly flexible.
