Altera Workshops and Demonstrations at SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2011

Altera will showcase their industrial embedded solutions for energy-efficient and safety-integrated drive systems at SPS/IPC/DRIVES Electric Automation Exhibition and Conference. Altera will show how their Cyclone FPGA devices enable industrial systems like drive systems with a high-performance control loop in floating point. The event will take November 22-24 in Nuremberg, Germany.

Altera Workshops

  • Shortening Time To Market for Certified Functional Safety Applications with FPGAs
    Participants will learn how to simplify and reduce development time for safety-integrated certification. Altera is the first FPGA supplier to obtain qualification of its devices and tools under safety standard IEC 61508.

  • Optimizing FPGA Motor Control Designs With The Right Tool Flow
    Co-presented with EBV Elektronik, this workshop will demonstrate the benefits of an FPGA-based motor control system leveraging a model-based design flow.

Altera Demonstrations

  • Drive-on-a-chip solution through model-based design
  • Support for multiple industrial networking protocols on a single device
  • Integrated FPGA control for 3-level IGBTs
  • New software development tool for ARM-Based SoC FPGAs
  • PC-based functional simulation of embedded development board for Cyclone V and Arria V SoC FPGA devices
  • Binary- and register-compatible, functional equivalent of SoC FPGA board ensures that software developed on the Virtual Target can be moved to the actual board with minimal effort
