Custom Power Electronics

custom power electronics module

Whatever are the final application and the target specifications, we have the competencies for: selecting the right converter topology and semiconductor technology, defining the components specifications, choosing the most appropriate gate driver design, simulating the converter behaviour, including losses and failures, performing a proper PCB layout and routing for reduced EMIs and improved isolation

Inverter prototype

Prototyping is essential for transforming ideas and projects into real products not only when performing research and development activities but also at the preproduction stage, for checking the performances and validating the operation prior to product launch. We are experinced in the design, construction and testing of general purpose and specific purpose prototypes, suitable for […]

Microcontroller, DSP, FPGA, DSP/FPGA or SoC?

ARM-based microcontroller platform for low-cost drive application

Nowadays several types of digital control solutions are available in the market: microcontrollers, Digital Signal Processors (DSPs), Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), Systems On Chip (SoCs), hybrid DSP/FPGA solutions. The right choice depends on the target application and on the expected life or required scalability of the final product. We have the competence for selecting […]

Cyclic position transfer between high resolution optical encoder and FPGA

Requirements for positioning accuracy and speed ripple are quite high in modern servo drives. To overcome these challenges, the whole feedback path should be carefully designed and the right sensors selected. Position sensors should be able to provide, at the same time, accurate and frequent information updates. Traditional incremental encoders or resolvers are inadequate in […]

Self-Commissioning of drive parameters

d-axis inductance surface

The knowledge of system parameters is of great importance in modern predictive controls for providing accurate response and control stability. Usually system parameters are obtained at production stage from direct measurement or more often from simulation or analysis. Such approaches, however, make the use of third-party products in the same electrical drive impossible to the final […]
