    Abstract:

Applications: Digital controller for AC drives ,Dc drives, Grid connected Applications, and other Power electronics Converters at a low cost and with reduced Obsolescence risk
Advantages: Conventional designs of Power Electronic control are based on microcontrollers and Digital signal Processors DSPs. Microcontrollers change too often and there is lots of re-work required to be done in order to keep pace with changing technology. We developed an FPGA based soft reconfigurable custom Power Electronic control processor with user defined Instructions design Methodology for Power Electronics applications. A reconfigurable architectures have proven to provide high performance in a wide range of applications. The user is designing a custom soft processor with his own instructions and CPU peripherals required for his application. This processor shall be downloaded to any FPGA then the FPGA becomes the physical processor. Depending on application the user shall change configurations or modules inside FPGA. As the algorithmic modules are in hardware the HSRPEC will perform faster than its software implementation in equivalent DSP implementation. Also, HSRPEC uses hardware parallel processing than software pipelining. As the processor design is in soft format which can be downloaded to any FPGA, processor obsolescence risk is minimum in HSRPEC methodology. The use of custom IPs reduces the software overhead, the number of lines in application program is less than its equivalent DSP and Microprocessor design. As we have the proven IP set and FPGA board which shall improve the time to market criteria. In HSRPEC at any point of time the user can shift from single core to multi core design without any change in FPGA board

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
