Xilinx, is showcasing the latest Industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions with its All Programmable hardware, software development environments, comprehensive IP portfolio, and system-level expertise at SPS IPC Drives 2016.  Xilinx’s system architects and Alliance Members are demonstrating differentiated, highly integrated, and system cost optimized solutions for Motor Control, Multilevel Inverters, Industrial Networking, Machine Vision, and Functional Safety/Security applications. Visit the Xilinx Stand in Hall 4, 249 at SPS IPC Drives 2016, November 22-24, at Nuremberg Messe.

Xilinx and Ecosystem Demonstrations – Hall 4,249

  • All Programmable Industrial Control System – Presented by Xilinx and
    This demonstration is showcasing an Industrial Control System (ICS) that highlights the All Programmable capabilities of the Zynq SoC and Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC devices for Industry 4.0 automation.  It is a preconfigured, fully functional ICS, which can be customized and extended without compromising determinism, enabling differentiation and faster time to market.
  • Zynq-7000 Functional Safety Reference System – Presented by Xilinx and Ikerlan
    This new reference system on the Zynq SoC showcases two safety channels with fault injection capabilities that enable comprehensive Functional Safety verification.  This demonstration presents this solution as a template for single-chip custom safety solutions, reducing the BOM cost of a safety design.
  • IO-Link Sensor Integration for Big Data Analytics – Presented by SoC-e
    In this demonstration, Zynq SoCs and Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC forms a high availability and time-aware network with gateway functions and direct sensor interfaces. Data processing throughout both devices allows for greater integration of more functions in a common unit that reduces the cost and size of the solution by making the dedicated gateway hardware obsolete.
  • Software Defined / Hardware Accelerated Radar Signal Processing – Presented by Ruhr University Bochum
    The demonstration highlights the advantage of using the SDSoC Development Environment for industrial control. It displays a levitating iron ball in a magnetic field with continuous position monitoring. Control loops are developed in software and are moved to the programmable logic portion of the Zynq device with SDSoC to achieve the fastest FFT to run a Frequency-Modulated Continuous Wave Radar application for position detection.
  • High Performance Silicon Carbide Three-Level Inverter – Presented by QDESYS
    This demonstration showcases a three-level inverter with twelve modulators and fast parallel control loops in the Zynq SoC.  The reference board utilized in this demonstration includes Silicon Carbide power stages in a small form factor that allows for higher switching frequencies, lower EMI, lower losses, and up to 40% higher output power compared to standard two-level inverters.
  • Industrial Networking and IIoT Connectivity – Presented by Avnet
    In conjunction with Avnet, Xilinx is showcasing the Avnet Industrial IoT Starter Kit which exhibits sensor-to-cloud connectivity and the Avnet Industry 4.0 Ethernet Kit, which supports four popular industrial Ethernet protocols with the Anybus IP from HMS.
