Rapid Control Prototyping
Plug & play solutions for power electronics
By combining imperix’s programmable controllers and power modules with dedicated software development solutions, users can easily build all sorts of power inverters, rectifiers, and DC/DC converters.
What’s more, our modular control technology provides research engineers with very high flexibility for building all sorts of power electronic applications.
Our products can be delivered as bare and independent products, turnkey systems, or anything in-between.
Imperix products are well suited for the implementation of power converter prototypes ranging from 100W to 100kW.
Kits and bundles
Imperix offers several product configurations that have been carefully selected for typical teaching or research use.
Imperix products are plug-and-play when used together, but can also be used with any other controller or power stage.
Imperix provides several accessories that also contribute to facilitating the implementation of laboratory-scale converters.
Imperix is currently building a complete knowledge base of control code and software examples, available free of use.
Fully-programmable digital controllers
Converter control systems
Imperix controllers distinguish from other digital control systems by being exclusively tailored for power electronics. This results in specific hardware characteristics as well as extensive pre-implemented software capabilities. Besides, our controllers are also very easy to use, thanks to their dedicated operating system plus intuitive computer software.
Rapid control prototyping (RCP) system
The B-Box RCP is a fully programmable DSP+FPGA controller dedicated to power electronic converters. Specially engineered for rapid control prototyping (RCP), it features hardware protections as well as high hardware and software flexibility.
Embeddable inverter controller
The B-Board PRO is the heart of the RCP controller. That said, it is also available as a standalone product for embedded applications. The board features a dual-core ARM processor and a Kintex-grade FPGA, plus advanced communication capabilities and extensive I/Os.
A modular approach of power electronics
Power converter modules
Imperix power modules are ready-to-use building blocks, which allow building up almost any power converter topology. They exist in various power ratings and internal structures. Each module notably features:
- Power semiconductors and gate drivers
- Voltage and current sensors, with local protections
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 choose between the automated generation of code – from Simulink or PLECS – or the superior flexibility and performance of hard coding:
C/C++ code development
The C/C++ programming SDK provides everything engineers need to program the 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.
