Overview:
Bringing industrial automation systems to market is no easy task. Increasing pressure from both technical and business requirements are driving the need for more streamlined, cost-effective systems that deliver double the performance of previous generations. How can designers increase processing speed, network bandwidth and system efficiency while increasing productivity, reducing cost and maintaining quality? Traditional MCU approaches are no longer a viable or ideal solution to address these types of challenges. This webcast takes a look at how to address these difficult technical and business challenges through innovative All Programmable development platforms from Xilinx that introduce breakthrough SoC-level integration and performance-per-watt optimization in systems across the factory floor—Motor Control, Industrial Networking and Machine Vision.

What Attendees Will Learn:
  • How to increase overall efficiency, reduce BOM cost and maximize performance in Factory Automation systems for Motor Control, Industrial Networking and Machine Vision through innovative technology such as the Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC family and 7 series Analog Mixed Signal customizable analog interface.
  • Alternative approaches to addressing design challenges presented by the evolution of Factory Automation are driving the need for higher-performance, efficient systems beyond traditional MCU capability.
