Frequency Domain System Identification for Matlab

The attached Matlab file is an implementatation of the frequency domain subspace system identification algorithm described in “Subspace Based Multivariable System Identification from Frequency Response Data”, IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, Vol. 41, No.7, July 1996. This tool allows SISO or MIMO models to be obtained from frequency response data. It is available free […]

Piezo Bender with Integrated Amplifier

A miniature high voltage power amplifier is laminated onto a piezoelectric bimorph bender using thermally conductive adhesive. The resulting actuator requires only 3.3V to operate which eliminates the need for an external high-voltage amplifier and wiring harness.

Micro and Nano-scale Positioning Systems at AIM 2014

Advances in Micro and Nano-scale Positioning Systems at IEEE Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics, Besançon, France, July 8-11, 2014
Despite the success of scanning probe and micro-scale systems, limitations still exist in terms of precision, operating speed, and reliability. Two invited sessions are proposed that will focus on novel mechanism design, advanced modeling techniques and control-related problems […]
