A simple closed-loop SPWM frequency and modulation index controller model was developed for this example. It has been compiled into .dll and .so files for execution on both Phar Lap and Linux RT targets, respectively.  The controller model is configured to run on the Real Time CPU and will be executed by the VeriStand Engine.  Data is routed from the CPU simulation (local controller) to the FPGA simulation (eHS, SCIM model) using the VeriStand System Configuration Mappings.

Exploring the Mappings to and from the Local Controller

The VeriStand System Configuration Mappings are used to route signals between the local controller and the other model components simulated on the FPGA.
