In the work eddy current sensors are described and evaluated. Theoretical part includes physical basics of the eddy currents, overview of available commercial products and technologies. Industrial sensors operation was assessed based on several working modes. Apart from this, the model was created in Matlab Simulink with Xilinx Blockset and then translated into a Xilinx ISE Design Suite compatible project. The performance of the resulting implementation was compared to the existing implementation in the Xilinx Spartan 3 FPGA board with the custom made sensor. Additionally, an introduction to FPGAs and VHDL is presented.
