Xilinx Inc. and International Rectifier (IR) has announced the immediate availability of the Accelerator motor control design platform, based on Xilinx's Spartan-II FPGA and IR's Motion Control Mixed Signal chipset.

The platform provides motor designers a low-cost, reconfigurable signal processing architecture using parallel processing and soft peripherals to achieve improved motor control performance with feedback control loop bandwidth up to 5kHz.

By providing both the high bandwidth needed for torque control and the flexibility for use in various types of motion peripherals, the Accelerator platform is also suitable for automotive drive train controls, automated assembly, and precision material handling.

Pricing for the development system (part number IRACS201) is $9,500 each, which includes all hardware for a 1.5kW servo amp, pre-loaded code into a Xilinx XC18V02 EEPROM targeted for the Spartan IIE-300, and ServoDesigner, Windows-based configuration software. The actual object code (EXO format) and source code (Verilog) are licensed separately from International Rectifier.
