Hardware in the loop, FPGAs help motor testing

Case study: Field programmable gate array (FPGA) devices can advance hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) capabilities for simulation and testing, moving from idea to production more quickly, as this Subaru hybrid example explains, with electric motor and drive testing. Subaru reduced test time to 1/20 of the estimated time for equivalent testing on a dynamometer.
