Maybe I have an interesting example for this subject "FPGA & Motor Control":
There is an article available describing an example of a multi channel stepper motor control with a working secure stall detection algorithm by real time analysis of the motor electronic behavior performed by a xilinx spartan 3 FPGA:
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
