Xilinx is the world’s leading provider of All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs, MPSoCs and 3D ICs, enabling the next generation of smarter, connected, and differentiated systems and networks. Driven by the industry-wide shifts towards Cloud Computing, SDN/NFV, Video Everywhere, Embedded Vision, Industrial IoT, and 5G Wireless, Xilinx innovations enable these applications that are both, software defined, yet hardware optimized. Xilinx’s portfolio of software defined and hardware optimized solutions include proven C and IP based design tools that support the development of ‘software defined hardware’, and a new family of software development environments that supports the development of ‘software defined systems’. With this unique combination, Xilinx is addressing the rapidly growing demands for programmability and intelligence with software, while enabling >10X the bandwidth, 1/10th the latency and power, and flexible any-to-any connectivity with optimized hardware.
IoT Solutions
The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a world where the physical objects around us – everything from heart pacemakers to fridges – are connected via digital networks. Schaffner has the expertise for the early identification of potential sources of interference, both in the development of new products and in subsequent system optimization. It offers a broad range of standard components, an efficient measurement service, expert technical advisors and the skills to develop and produce customer-specific solutions quickly and deliver them to all key markets throughout the world.
Industry 4.0 or Industrial Internet of Things has been a big focus for Dimension Automation. Based on the Industry 4.0 standard, the company has developed several products for different industries and gained several patents.
SEMA Cloud comprises a cloud server architecture hosting the SEMA Cloud IoT Service which can be managed and administered by a web based Management Portal and which is provided to ADLINKs customers as platform as a service (PaaS). And it includes a smart Gateway software with an IoT stack on top of intelligent SEMA middleware, enabling embedded devices to connect securely to the cloud using state-of-the-art encryption technologies without additional design requirements. By pushing data to the users cloud server via any kind of TCP/IP connection such as 3G, 4G, LAN or wireless LAN — system operators have easy access to data and analytics through web browsers or a web application programming interface (WebAPI), using devices such as desktop PC, tablet or smartphone or using data analytics systems. System operators can verify, monitor and manage system performance from a single, central location, improving reliability and reducing management costs.
