Kits and bundles

Imperix offers several product configurations that have been carefully selected for typical teaching or research use.

Inter-operability

Imperix products are plug-and-play when used together, but can also be used with any other controller or power stage.

Accessories

Imperix provides several accessories that also contribute to facilitating the implementation of laboratory-scale converters.

Software examples

Imperix is currently building a complete knowledge base of control code and software examples, available free of use.

Power converter CONTROLLERS

RCP rapid control prototyping controller power converter controller

The B-Box RCP is a fully-programmable DSP+FPGA controller dedicated to power electronic converters. Specially engineered for rapid control prototyping applications (RCP), it distinguishes from other real-time control targets by its hardware and software configurability. Simultaneously, the B-Box RCP also guarantees a very easy use and programming.

The B-Board PRO is the heart of the RCP controller. It is also available as a standalone product for embedded applications. The board features a Xilinx Zynq-based dual-core ARM processor and a Kintex-grade FPGA, plus advanced communication capabilities and extensive I/Os.

Power converter modules

Imperix power modules are ready-to-use building blocks that allow building up almost any power converter topology. They exist in various power ratings and internal structures. Each module features:

  • Power semiconductors and gate drivers
  • Voltage and current sensors, with local protections
  • Cooling

Modules can be integrated within rack-mountable chassis and enclosures. Additional passive filtering elements are also available.

Control software development

Easy controller programming

Imperix provides control software development tools dedicated to power electronics. Two Software Development Kits (SDK) are proposed, dedicated to either graphical or C/C++ programming.

Engineers are thus free to chose between the automated generation of code – from Simulink or PLECS – or the superior flexibility and performance of hard coding:

  • CPP SDK – support for C/C++ development
  • ACG SDK – support for Simulink and PLECS
C/C++ code development

The C/C++ programming SDK provides everything engineers need to program the B-Box RCP or B-Board PRO controllers in a straightforward manner. For advanced users and complex projects, C/C++ is a must, thanks to its superior flexibility and performance over the ACG SDK.

Graphical control design

The Automated Code Generation (ACG) SDK allows generating code and programming real-time controllers directly from Simulink or PLECS, which is achieved in only one click! This also enables realistic simulation of the complete application before the actual programming.
