Microsemi Corporation and HMS Industrial Networks have announced the availability of HMS's Anybus CompactCom 40-series products for Industrial Ethernet solutions based on Microsemi's SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA. The highly secure devices offer lower total cost of ownership and accelerated time-to-market with low power and secure Industrial Ethernet protocol conversion solutions on a single SmartFusion2 FPGA platform.
The Anybus CompactCom 40-series products offer hardware solutions designed for factory automation applications including programmable logic controllers (PLCs), motor drives, motion drive control and safety modules. HMS products are available in chip, brick and module product offerings, allowing customers to avoid designing ASSP/ASIC-specific boards for each Industrial Ethernet standard.
Microsemi's highly secure SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA offers layered hardware and software solutions to protect the IP, platform, manufacturing flow and data layer according to a customer's specific needs. The low power FPGA architecture enables use of the device in compact solutions such as the Anybus CompactCom 40-series products.
According to HMS Industrial Networks' internal analysis, Industrial Ethernet is growing at a rate of 17% annually—more than double the fieldbus growth rate. This growth allows HMS Industrial Networks and Microsemi to continue developing products catering to the specific needs of this expanding market opportunity.
HMS Industrial Networks is currently offering its Anybus CompactCom 40-series products to its customers.
