Problem statement: In an advanced electronics world most of the applications are developed by microcontroller based embedded system. Approach: Multicore processor based motor controller was presented to improve the processing speed of the controller and improve the efficiency of the motor by maintaining constant speed. It was based on the combination of Cortex processor (Software core) and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA, Hardware core). These multicore combination were help to design efficient low power motor controller. Results: A functional design of cortex processor and FPGA in this system was completed by using Actel libero IDE and IAR embedded IDE software PWM signal was generated by the proposed processor to control the motor driver circuit. All the function modules were programmed by Very-High-Speed Integrated Circuit Hardware Description Language (VHDL). The advantage of the proposed system was optimized operational performance and low power utility. Multicore processor was used to improve the speed of execution and optimize the performance of the controller. Conclusion: Without having the architectural concept of any motor we can control it by using this method.This is an low cost low power controller and easy to use. The simulation and experiment results verified its validity.
