Quebec City (CANADA), December 12th 2012. Alizem is pleased to announce that its newly released COTS Motor Control Software IP for Servo-Drives applications has received the Altera Megafunction Partner Program (AMPP) certification from Altera Corporation, the highest existing IP quality standard for Altera FPGAs.
“This is another important milestone for Alizem to receive AMPP certification from Altera.” said Dr. Marc Perron, President at Alizem. “It is a well-known fact that IP quality is a critical factor when a system designer is in the process of selecting an IP provider for its application. Furthermore, the existence of qualified IP on the market is also an important factor when a team decides to outsource this type of expertise or not. We are very proud at Alizem in having our world-class expertise in power electronics and FPGA-based embedded software design recognized by Altera, a very respected company that has recently been listed among World’s Top 100 Most Innovative companies by Forbes”.
“The addition of Alizem to our AMPP program creates new IP offerings to Altera’s customers in the field of power electronics applications such as motor control and energy conversion,” said Sheri Andrew, senior manager IP marketing for Altera. “Our AMPP program offers customers advanced and pre-qualified solutions that extend the range of applications for our leading-edge components. With the new addition of Alizem to our AMPP program, customers developing motor control systems can increase their design team productivity while they focus the majority of their design resources on product differentiation.”
The motor control software IP that Alizem has developed is optimized for Altera FPGAs and development tools. This solution requires no HDL coding or deep motor control development expertise, and complements Altera’s recently launched Motor Control Development Framework, helping to boost designer productivity and further reduce their time to market.
