An overview is provided of the issues relating to processor implementation of real-time control. The paper concentrates upon the practical rather than theoretical aspects and has a focus upon the requirements for high-performance embedded-control applications. Controller formulations are reviewed to clarify algorithmic requirements, after which issues relating to quantisation both in time and amplitude are identified, before moving on to a summary of processing options which can be used. Finally, future possibilities and trends are discussed.
