Design Tool Automates PID Controller Development

Development of analog proportional integral derivative (PID) control loops can now be automated thanks to a new EDA tool from Anadigm. With AnadigmPID, users can build an analog PID control loop within one of the company's field-programmable analog arrays (FPAAs) by specifying top-level control coefficients. Once designed and simulated, the controller circuit can be downloaded to an FPAA for testing and validation. When used for a PID control circuit, a single FPAA can replace up to 50 discrete semiconductor and passive components.
