Industry 4.0 presents many benefits in terms of optimising production and identifying equipment problems sooner, using data analysis. This addresses genuine concerns about robustness and also raises issues such as system security.
This white paper covers the changes happening at the programmable logic controller level in I4.0, including the shift towards deploying PLCs directly in robotic systems, and how these trends are helping manufacturers to deliver more robust and secure PLCs.
It also discusses the role of semiconductor manufacturers in this evolution and how the products that they develop are enabling it.
