To keep pace with the rapid evolution of Industry 4.0, industrial IoT system developers rely onsmart and secure connected devices to automate factories and smart buildings. Electric motors in particular are a cornerstone of today's factory and automation processes, and motor control equipment represents a substantial segment of today's automation market.
Multi-axis industrial drives, ethernet-based time-sensitive networking (TSN) communications and industrial automation control system (IACS) security are critical technologies for automation applications. Because of their complex motor drive, communications and security requirements, these industrial applications can be challenging to develop without optimized processing platforms. Intelligent industrial IoT (IIoT) systems must communicate, share data and interact with both users and other machines—and handle all of these tasks securely.
To address these application needs, NXP debuted the i.MX RT Industrial Drive Development Platform to allow system designers to develop and test industrial use cases on a single, all-inclusive platform, speeding up time-to-market, while maintaining a secure-by-design approach. The NXP i.MX RT Industrial Drive Development Platform provides a comprehensive, modular solution that brings together essential technologies that will redefine the next era of secure IIoT devices and drive the transition to truly smart factories.
