Industrial Embedded System Application

- Jun 14, 2019-


The industrial automation equipment based on embedded chips will have a great development. At present, there are a large number of 8, 16, and 32-bit embedded microcontrollers in the application. Networking is the main way to improve production efficiency, product quality, and reduce human resources. Industrial process control, digital machine tools, power systems, grid security, grid equipment monitoring, petrochemical systems. In the case of traditional industrial control products, the low-end type is often an 8-bit microcontroller. However, with the development of technology, 32-bit and 64-bit processors have gradually become the core of industrial control equipment, and will certainly achieve considerable development in the next few years.


Industrial equipment is the largest category of electromechanical products. In the current industrial control equipment, industrial computer is widely used. These industrial computers generally use industrial-grade processors and various equipments, among which X86 MPUs are the most. Industrial control requirements are often high, requiring a variety of equipment interfaces, in addition to real-time control, the device status, sensor information, etc. must be displayed on the display in real time. These 8-bit microcontrollers are unsatisfactory. Most of them used 16-bit processors. With the rapid development of processors, 32-bit and 64-bit processors have gradually replaced 16-bit processors, further improving system performance. . The system using PC104 bus is small, stable and reliable, and is favored by many users. However, these IPCs are often DOS or Windows systems. Although they have embedded features, they cannot be called pure embedded systems. In addition, in terms of industrial controllers and device controllers, it is the world of various embedded processors. These controllers often use more than 16-bit processors, and various MCUs, Arm, Mips, and 68K series processors occupy a central position in the controller. These processors provide a wealth of interface bus resources through which data acquisition, data processing, communication, and display (displays typically connect LEDs or LCDs). Recently, Philips and ARM jointly launched a 32-bit RISC embedded controller for industrial control, using the most advanced 0.18 micron CMOS embedded flash processing technology, operating voltage can be as low as 1.2 volts, it can also reduce 25% to 30% Manufacturing costs are a cost-effective solution for end users in the industrial sector.


Embedded technology is particularly important in industrial control and belongs to the core of control. Timmon technology continuously optimizes embedded systems and strives to create a high-performance, high-reliability non-traditional industrial control device.
