Anadigm tool enhances PID controller development

The AnadigmPID tool from Anadigm allows users to build an analog PID (proportional, integral, derivative) control loop on an integrated silicon platform by merely specifying the top-level control coefficients. Once designed and simulated, the controller circuit can be immediately downloaded to a FPAA device for testing and validation.

PID control loops are suitable for use in applications such as motor control, tunable lasers, level and flow control in chemical processes, and temperature control.

The AnadigmPID tool abstracts the analog design process to the functional level, so system designers need only to specify the top-level control coefficients. The specified control circuit is implemented automatically on a drift-free, precise, and integrated silicon platform.

AnadigmPID is one of a series of AnadigmAssistant tools that automate the construction of complex analog functions involving multiple Configurable Analog Modules in AnadigmDesigner2 EDA software.

A complete evaluation kit with a development board, entry-level software, and updated

documentation is available for $199.
