Thank you for your comments. The FPU need comes from the fact that Fujitsu uses Matlab for mathematical modeling of motor control algorithms. Matlab uses floating point data and, therefore, the integrated FPU supports best porting capability for the optimum result.

A long time ago I did trapezoidal brushless motor control. We found it useful to have some internal states that were 48bits. We also found it useful to have a parameters to cause shifts a after multiplies. So in some respects we were getting close to a floating point implementation some twenty years ago. I am not sure if I have proved or disproved your point. Best Regards Tom M.

Do you really need floating point for motor control? Wow...

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
