Electric Motor Control

Electric Motor Control

The Altair Embed library of motor models and motor control algorithms, for both sensored and sensorless applications, provides the starting point to accelerate embedded motor control projects for any type of electric motor, including AC induction, BLDC, PMSM, brushed DC, or stepper motors.

Digital Power Design

Altair Embed provides hundreds of digital power models to quickly convert analog designs to digital designs and develop compensator algorithms. The library includes blocks and examples for simulation and code generation of power supply, digital power components, and controls to shorten embedded software development.

Analog and Digital Communications

Analog and Digital Communications

Altair Embed has an extensive block library to design and simulate analog and digital communication systems at the physical layer. This rapid prototyping tool allows teams with a need to simulate a variety of communication systems concepts to efficiently perform "what if" studies before building any hardware. The library contains more than 200 functional blocks including modulators, demodulators, channel models, filters, distortion-true RF blocks, encoding, and decoding.

It was developed for industries including IoT, satellite communications, RF systems, home automation, aerospace, and automotive, but is equally suited for academic use as a platform for visualizing the key aspects of communication systems, digital waveforms, and their associated signal processing concepts.
