Digitization and networking have long since entered the automation technology sector, flanked by buzzwords such as “Industry 4.0”, “Internet of Things”, “Intelligent Factory” and “Smart Factory”.
The increasingly networked processes present major challenges for manufacturing and automation: Systems and applications, devices and software, and people and machines must all communicate with one another. Networking and digitization entail added risks which have to be met with new concepts for safety and reliability. This means taking into account and abiding by the standards and methods determined independently of the manufacturer.
Along the way to intelligent manufacturing, Hitex experts are reliable partners and work closely with the customer to implement solutions for making industry automation fit for the future – and for guaranteeing safety and security.
AURIX – microcontroller for safety and performance
The AURIX multicore architecture by Infineon guarantees safety and performance and highly complex control with requirements up to the SIL3 safety standard. To guarantee competent advice for sophisticated AURIX projects, Hitex was selected by Infineon as the AURIX Preferred Design House.
Safety in Arm-based projects
For price sensitive automation projects Arm-based microcontrollers might be a good fit. For such projects solutions such as e.g. the X-CUBE-STM for the STM32 microcontoller family are available. Hitex assists in the safety design and implementation.
