A survey on reducing reconfiguration cost: reconfigurable PID control as a special case

Rikus R. le Roux, George van Schoor, Pieter A. van Vuuren
2014 IFAC Proceedings Volumes  
As an example, this architecture is used to discuss the methodology used to design a reconfigurable PID controller.  ...  Reconfigurable computing is a paradigm in computing architecture that refers to the practice of using interchangeable hardware modules to enhance the performance of conventional Von-Neumann style computing  ...  A softcore processor, such as the MicroBlaze TM from Xilinx R , requires FPGA resources to implement. A hardcore processor on the other hand has dedicated hardware embedded into the die.  ...

Development of a Flexible FPGA-Based Platform for Flight Control System Research

Robert DeMott
This hardware platform has been successfully used as a PID-based control system for an RC truck robot [18, 19 ].  ...  The flight control software is PID based and runs on a 206MHz Intel StrongARM SA-1110 CPU.  ...  The Xilinx CIC Compiler v1.2 was evaluated prior to developing the custom CIC filter discussed above, but was ultimately not used due to its relatively high FPGA resource requirements.  ...
