AMDC-Firmware is a collection of embedded system code (written in C and Verilog) which runs on the AMDC Hardware and controls advanced motor systems. It is open-source, high-performance, flexible, and research-oriented.
The target processor is the Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoC which includes both a dual-core DSP and tightly integrated FPGA. The AMDC firmware utilizes both parts of the processor (DSP + FPGA).
- Obtain a working hardware platform -- see the obtaining hardware page for more.
