In our recent successful application for ITF tie-3 project (ITS/078/06), we propose to design a new cutting edge FPGA-based motion control IC chip. The core of this design is a flexible multi-axis motion control engine with Verilog HDL language. The design will be firstly implemented on an industry standard Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) provided by Xilinx, and then verified in a new motion control/driving product system that will be developed with the designed IC technology. The whole development will have two phases: Phase 1 – Design a new FPGA based motion control integrated circuit (IC); Phase 2 – Develop a 3-axis motion control and driving evaluation system with the proposed IC to verify effectiveness of the chip design. Success of this project will play a critical role to the follow-on chip prototyping that will be done after this project. The purpose of this top-up fund is for ensuring success of the on-going ITF tie-3 project, by further providing finance supports in all aspects related the ITF project. With this support, the investigation on the chip prototyping design may be initialized earlier.
