Xilinx Demonstrates All Programmable Solutions for Industrial Automation Applications at SPS/IPC/Drives 2014

All Programmable FPGAs and SoCs enable differentiated, highly integrated, and system cost optimized solutions for Industry 4.0 applications

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) will demonstrate All Programmable solutions for industrial automation applications at SPS/IPC/Drives 2014.  Xilinx, systems companies and ecosystem partners will demonstrate how Xilinx All Programmable FPGAs and SoCs enable differentiated, highly integrated, and system cost optimized solutions for Industry 4.0 factories. Applications include motor control, multilevel inverters, industrial networking, machine vision and functional safety.  Visit the Xilinx Stand in Hall 4 #169 at SPS/IPC/Drives 2014, November 25-27, at Nuremberg Messe.

Xilinx and Ecosystem Demonstrations - Hall 4-169

    --  High Performance Silicon Carbide Multilevel Inverter - Presented by

        QDESYS This demonstration showcases a Zynq®-7010 All Programmable SoC

        based three level TNPC implementation with low THD (distortion), high

        ratio power/volume, three level modulation with very low EMI, low

        switching loss, and ultra-fast control loops.

    --  EtherCAT® Fast Drive - Presented by QDESYS This demonstration

        presents a high performance EtherCAT electric drive with an embedded

        EtherCAT slave controller IP core from Beckhoff GmbH. It provides a

        system response time of 62.5 microns and fast control loops for energy

        efficient motor control.

    --  Embedded Computer Vision for Intelligent Stations - Presented by Silicon

        Software This demonstration showcases high image processing speed and

        safe recognition of inspected objects by combining the programmable

        logic in the Zynq All Programmable SoC with Visual Applets from Silicon


    --  Anybus on Zynq All Programmable SoC- Presented by HMS This demonstration

        displays how HMS selected the Zynq All Programmable SoC for products

        that integrate Industrial Ethernet. By utilizing Anybus at the base, a

        comprehensive platform that leverages the capabilities of All

        Programmable SoCs is demonstrated through the Econ 100 as the first Zynq

        SoC-based product by IXXAT.

    --  Maximum Bandwidth Over Industrial Networks - Presented by ZHAW This

        demonstration showcases how a hardware accelerated Profinet

        implementation in an FPGA allows the utilization of the full bandwidth

        of Fast Ethernet (100 Mbit/s) without compromising real-time control

        loop capabilities.

    --  High Availability Cyber-Physical System - Presented by SoC-e This

        demonstration displays zero loss switchover between networks and

        synchronization between two Netboxes with embedded Bluetooth

        connectivity for monitoring and maintenance.  Xilinx FPGAs and SoCs with

        IP core solutions from SoC-e provide low latency at low resource

        consumption with solutions for HSR (High Availability Seamless Ring),

        PRP (Parallel Redundancy Ring), and IEEE1588-2008.

    --  IEC 61508 Functional Safety Solution - Presented by Xilinx This

        demonstration highlights a safety-oriented motor control system that is

        based on two Xilinx processors running in dual-core lock-stepping mode

        at the core of the IDF/IVT Xilinx demonstrator.  The design transforms a

        single core industrial grade application into a dual-core lockstep

        system that ensures high reliability and dependability for functional

        safety systems.
