Multi-Protocol Industrial Ethernet Detection for Industrial Automation

Some of the well-established real-time Ethernet protocols require dedicated MAC hardware support in terms of FPGA or ASICs. A TI Reference Design describes a multi-protocol Industrial Ethernet protocol detection firmware for PRU-ICSS which allows detecting the type of protocol and loading the appropriate industrial application during run-time into a Sitara processor.


 

Licensing and Security for the Internet of Things

The IoT needs much stronger protection than the closed systems of the past. Safeguards against reverse engineering and manipulation are required along the entire design chain – from the hardware to the individual application.


 

SERCOS III AM437x Slave & AM335x Communications Development Platform

The TIDEP0039 for AM437x and TIDEP0010 for AM335x reference designs combine the Sitara processor family from TI, and the SERCOS III media access control (MAC) layer into a single system-on-chip (SoC) solution.


Advantages of using BLDC motor technology and electronics

Are you interested in DC motor options for your applications? This new whitepaper from Micronas discusses the advantages of using BLDC motor technology and electronics for industrial, machining, test & measurement, etc.


 

New TI C2000 Delfino MCUs: industrial drive control system-on-chip

Simplify your system with the industry’s first real-time industrial drives controller SOC supporting both analog and digital position sensors. The new C2000™ Delfino™ F28379 MCUs with DesignDRIVE Position Manager are the solution when developing for industrial inverter and servo drives applications.


Future-proof your display in embedded industrial applications

This paper examines the key factors affecting the lifetime of graphic LCD displays, to help designers reach the right conclusion and make decisions suited to particular circumstances and needs.


Enabling real-time Industry 4.0 applications with the Gigabit Ethernet PHY family

In this webtalk, TI's new family of six industrial Gigabit Ethernet physical layer (PHY) devices is introduced which enables engineers to bring real-time industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) capabilities to rugged factory automation systems, motor drives, and test and measurement equipment.


Meeting the integration challenge in programmable logic controllers

Industry 4.0 is fundamentally transforming what it takes to win in the PLC market. Smaller form factors, higher I/O density, and advanced capabilities - success today demands new strategies for managing competing demands for more functions in less space.


MCU enables simple creation of EtherCAT applications

This article introduces the microcontroller XMC4800 which contains specialized functions and features to simplify EtherCAT applications. It is the first microcontroller with an integrated EtherCAT slave controller and analog/mixed signal IP using the Cortex M4 processor from ARM.


The most noise-immune capacitive touch Microcontrollers

This presentation introduces MSP Microcontrollers with CapTIvate touch technology. They are the lowest power capacitive touch MCUs and first to feature IEC61000-4-x certified solutions.
