ANTAIOS simplifies industrial networking
The new ANTAIOS multi-fieldbus controller from profichip enables higher integration in a smaller package to fulfill the requirements of the industrial automation market.
The latest development by profichip combines a powerful ARM Cortex-A5 processor for advanced user applications with an effective and very flexible communication technology for today’s industrial applications demanding sophisticated real-time capabilities. It is designed for remote-IOs, gateways, sensors, actors and communication master modules.
Additionally a unique feature of this System-On-Chip (SoC) is the high-speed backplane communication master for profichip’s SliceBus® Technology. It provides fast and reliable communication for up to 64 of profichip’s SNAP+ slave controllers.
Legacy fieldbus support is integrated by special hardware modules and can be active in parallel to the sophisticated, programmable Real-Time Ethernet Switching Unit. A third (Gigabit-)Ethernet port rounds up the rich set of communication capabilities making the ANTAIOS the ideal choice for any kind of communication challenge.
