Industrial Communications

Xilinx® All Programmable solutions for Industrial Networking form the most versatile platforms that provide scalability and flexibility for factories. The computing capabilities of Xilinx devices match perfectly the needs of powerful Ethernet-based protocol for real-time communication. Profinet, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, Powerlink, and many more are supported by IP Cores from industry leading Alliance partners. Acceleration in hardware allows fulfilling strictest real-time and latency requirements and follows the evolution of standards easily.

It's cost efficient and compact. Xilinx technology lets you the network with applications, hardware-accelerated analytics, control loops and other logic like encoder interfaces. Single-chip PLCs are easily possible. Self-contained IP cores guarantee the modularity that you need for platforms on which you can build product variants easily and fast.
