Control Architectures

The control and drive technology benefits strongly from IT developments. Increasing computing power due to multicore, GPU and FPGA systems as well as cloud technology, miniaturization of hardware components and novel software concepts are used efficiently at the ISW for the further development of control and drive systems. Among other things, the ISW contributed significantly to the architecture of current CNC systems, and with the Open Drive Control Platform and test and certification solutions for fieldbus and control systems we have developed other innovative solutions and concepts.
