Abstract

A method for the development of an Extra-Fast Fuzzy Logic Controller is presented in this paper, using a CAD tool to utilize the potentials of programmable hardware [1]. This is accomplished by generating custom VHDL synthesizable code [2] that is targeted to an FPGA chip. The CAD tool produces, also, bit patterns that represent a compiled version of the fuzzy-logic controller [3]. These are stored in memory modules. The basic idea is simple but very efficient with respect to the achieved processing speed, the required hardware and the ease of programmability.
