In this paper, the authors explain a method for the design and implementation of digital controller based on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) device. It is more compact, power efficient and provides high speed capabilities as compared to software based PID controllers. The proposed method is based on implementation of digital controller as digital filters using DSP architectures. The PID controller is designed using MATLAB and Simulink to generate a set of coefficients associated with the desired controller characteristics. The controller coefficients are then included in VHDL that implements the PID controller on to FPGA.
