Abstract

Computational system modeling is full of ambiguous situations, wherein the designer cannot decide, with precision, what should be the outcome of the system. Process control is one of the many applications that took advantage of the fuzzy logic. Controller are usually embedded into the controller device. This chapter aims at presenting the development of a reconfigurable efficient architecture for fuzzy controllers, suitable for embedding. The architecture is parameterizable so it allows the setup and configuration of the controller so it can be used for various problem applications. An application of fuzzy controllers was implemented and its cost and performance are presented.
