With the growing possibilities of industrial communication, new challenges are also emerging. One very important topic at the moment is how to optimally handle communication protocols in real time. The fact that today almost every machine is equipped with a communication interface also changes the game. Devices connected to the Internet require secure communication to prevent data manipulation or theft.
Wired communication still dominates by far the connectivity of different hierarchy levels within industrial automation systems. Whether it is the connection of sensors, actuators, motors and drives to an industrial control system or high-level communication to or from a cloud via Ethernet or proprietary fieldbus systems, a secure, robust and reliable exchange of information is required, partly based on real-time properties. From transceivers, PHYs, peripherals on microcontrollers to standalone communication controllers, Infineon offers a range of devices supporting different protocols and communication standards. In terms of data security and integrity, Infineon's high-security microcontrollers based on leading hardware-based security are the right choice.
Identify the three pillars upon which Infineon quality is based and recognize the main focus points of Infineon’s transceiver quality program. After this training, you will be familiar with each solution‘s high-level features, development tools, and intended applications, as well as which one best suits your needs.
Do you know what industrial automation is? Join us on this journey through the world of factory automation and find out how semiconductor solutions help factories become smart! Modern industries typically require many coordinated single steps to accomplish a finished product or any activity flow. Imagine this with no automation in place: any high volume outputs or uninterrupted courses of action at a high level of quality and in a short time would not be possible, would it?
