Abstract: Process control is one of the many applications that took advantage of the fuzzy logic. Controller is usually embedded into the controller device. This paper aims at presenting the development of a reconfigurable efficient architecture for fuzzy controllers, suitable for embedding. The architecture is parameterisable so it allows the setup and configuration of the controller so it can be used for various problem applications.

Keywords: fuzzy controller; FPGA; field-programmable gate arrays; fuzzy control; fuzzy logic; controller design; process control; embedded systems; reconfigurable architecture.
