Abstract

This paper describes a compact, high-speed special purpose processor, which offers a lowcost solution to implement linear time invariant controllers. The controller has been reformulated into a modified state-space representation based on the δ operator, which is optimised for numerical efficiency. This Control System Processor (CSP) has been implemented using a programmable ASIC (ProASIC) device.
