For your Digital Control Workshop which microcontrollers are taught in the class?

Texas Instruments?

Thanks John

 

Hi John,

The uniqueness of the Digital Control Workshop is that it is not focused on one microcontroller family.  We cover the key know how that ensures you and your team will get your digital power supply robust and reliable.

Here at ELMG Digital Power our platform is an FPGA based power converter controller that we have developed.  We sell power electronic specific FPGA IP blocks for PWM, filters, three to two blocks and all the other required power electronic blocks.

We have development experience in using processors for power electronics control from

  • Xilinx
  • Atmel
  • Microchip
  • STM
  • AD and
  • Ti

Our course came about when and R and D manager asked us why his team had knowledge gaps that we were now helping fix.  These gaps were common across a number of our OEM clients.  We address these key common knowledge gaps in the course.

Happy to have a netmeeting or skype call to talk through this at anytime.

Xilinx Alliance Program Re-Certification

ELMG Digital Power are continuing in the Xilinx Alliance Program.

After meeting the requirement to have Xilinx certified engineers we successfully completed the application for the program.

When asked about this Dr Laird said

“As part of ELMG Digital Power’s continuing commitment to providing fantastic service and products we are privileged in continuing our Xilinx Alliance Program membership.   We see great things happening with Xilinx All Programmable FPGAs and Zynq SoCs.  It was great to see the capability of the SDSoC tools and to see the progress and extension of the Vivado Suite.  We are really pleased to continue our Xilinx Alliance Program commitment and are please to be part of the Xilinx community.”

Digital Power Electronics Control Reference Books

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

Recently I got asked for advice on what we have for Digital Power Electronics Control Reference Books.

This is the link to the list on Amazon.

Digital power books at the top and hardcore control texts at the bottom.

We have all of these books on our shelves.

All are good.

Feedback about the latest webinar

ELMG July Webinar feedback

Thank you for your time, Hamish. It was an hour with quite some information in.

I also was on such a seminar you mentioned, which showed an analog to digital compensator “transformation” (TI).

I also think that most of the papers I saw did it this way. I am more used to handle analog poles… Seems to be interesting to get a better feeling for the z-Plane poles/zeroes. Is there also some paper/book you can recommend to get some better feeling about s vs z plane?


A question from my side is: You mentioned a tool you can download and try some code for free, if I remember right. Can you post, which one that was?


… I am looking forward to the next.

 

The free software tool is SciLab www.scilab.org

It is a good tool.  We use it for demonstrations.

Next webinar will be end of August.  Dates will be available soon.
