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.
