IO-Link baseret løsning til udvikling af smart factory løsninger
Renesas Electronics udvider programmet af sensor netværk gateway-designs med RZ/N1S IO-Link Master Solution til smart factory applikationer (in english).Renesas Electronics has introduced a new IO-Link master development kit to accelerate IO-Link-based application development for industrial networked devices in a smart factory.
The development kit includes a board and pre-qualified sample software provided by TMG. The board has eight IO-Link connecters allowing developers to immediately connect IO-Link slave devices and start the evaluation process. The easy-to-use development kit contributes to shorter prototype-to-production process time and helps to reduce the development burden for engineers.
The solution is supported by two CPUs that operate independently and simultaneously with a large built-in SRAM. The eight-port IO-Link Master is controlled by one CPU; the other CPU features an R-IN engine architecture and supports Industrial Ethernet communication to the upper layers, such as PLC, without any external microcontroller, microprocessor, or memory like DDR. Integrating the two CPUs in a small 12mm x 12mm LFBGA package also helps with designing compact PCBs.
- As a leading supplier of IO-Link master solutions, TMG has been supporting IO-Link developers since the technology has been released. The compact size, two integrated CPUs, one for IO-Link and the other one for Industrial Ethernet communication, make Renesas' RZ/N1S the ideal choice for typical IO-Link master applications. We look forward to providing our stack for IO-Link, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP to RZ/N1S users, says Klaus-Peter Willems, Managing Partner of TMG.
- For more than 25 years, Renesas has been providing a variety of solutions for the industrial automation market, supporting our customers as they catch the Industry 4.0 wave, adds Akira Denda, Vice President of Industrial Automation Business Unit, Renesas Electronics Corporation.
- This new IO-Link Master solution, which is supported by TMG for its protocol stack, will help developers bring innovative applications to market easier and more quickly, and to expand the use of IO-Link-based applications in a smart factory.
