Applications of field programmable gate arrays for engine control
Automotive engine control is becoming increasingly complex due to the drivers of emissions, fuel economy, and fault detection. Research in to new engine concepts is often limited by the ability to control combustion. Traditional engine-targeted micro controllers have proven difficult for the typical engine researchers to use and inflexible for advanced concept engines. With the advent of Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based engine control system, many of these impediments to research have been lowered. This dissertation will talk about three stages of FPGA engine controller application. ...
