Precise control of DC motors using an FPGA

Posted on Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 in FPGA by DP

Chris wrote extensive documentation on how to implement precise control of DC motors using FPGAs.

The goal of this project is to build a simple one input, one output system that will control a motor. The control input will come from a trimpot and the FPGA or CPLD’s job will be to use the input to create the proper duty cycle PWM output to the DC motor controller.
