Xilinx Inc. has unleashed what it says are advanced industrial automation applications and technology based on its Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs. According to the company, the solutions offer developers solutions to the extreme bandwidth, smart vision, ubiquitous computing and security/safety needs of next-generation industrial automation applications.

The Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC intelligent drives platform is a high-precision, low noise multi-motors electrical drive demonstration that shows a significant system performance improvement when compared to a conventional microprocessor or DSP implementation using the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC.

The Zynq-7000 SoM embedded processing platform demonstrates the capability and flexibility of Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs for rapid integration of industrial networking interfaces into an industrial automation sub-system.

The Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC POWERLINK evaluation platform runs on a Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC taking advantage of an Open POWERLINK stack and Linux operating systems running on ARM dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore processor.

An energy market application with a high availability seamless redundancy (HSR)-parallel redundancy protocol (PRP) switch from Xilinx Alliance Program member SOC-e implements high-availability, seamless redundancy and parallel redundancy protocols for reliable and redundant Ethernet communications based on a Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA, detailed the company.
