This paper presents of position control of Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) the implementation with Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) is proposed. Cascade control with inner loop as a current control and an outer loop as a position control is chosen for simplicity and fast response. FPGA is a single chip (single processing unit), which will perform the following tasks: receive and convert control signal, create a reference current signal, control current and create switch signal and act as position controller in a addition of zero form. The 10 kHz sampling frequency and 25 bit of floating point data are defined in this implementation.The experimental results show that the performance of FPGA based position control is comparable with the hardware based position control, with the advantage of control algorithm flexibility
