Fuzzy-logic-based control (FLC) systems have emerged as one of the most promising areas for research in Applied Computational Intelligence. These systems operate with knowledge represented in a linguistic form (IF-THEN rules) that describes relations which are not precisely known, but those effects are intuitively understood by humans. This fundamental feature makes FLC a powerful tool for industrial applications, since complex systems can be controlled by easily comprehensive rules. The growth in number of fuzzy logic applications led to the need of finding efficient and economic ways to implement them. The Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) devices, with their reconfigurable logic, practicality, portability, low consumption of energy, high operation speedy and large data-storage capacity, are a great choice for FLC embedded systems project development and prototyping. In this paper, the design and implementation of a Mamdani-type Fuzzy controller is demonstrated using VHDL programming language.
