In this paper, a soccer robot design method for FLRA MiroSot League is proposed. A control IP that conforms the functionality of the robot soccer game is designed by using VHDL, and the design control IP is implemented on a FPGA chip. The control IP include the following functions: baud rate generator, serial to parallel data extractor based on RS232 protocol, control command decoder, ID selector of soccer robot, plus width modulation (PWM) generator, and motor feedback signal analysis. Some simulation results of the MAX+PLUSII are given to demonstrate the functionality of the control IP. From practical test, we can see that the implemented robot indeed meets the basic terms of multi-function and high efficiency for the robot soccer game.
