3D Printers & Additive Manufacturing

Scalable, Accelerated Sensing and Control supporting Evolving Algorithms and Materials

Overview

The 3D printing space is rapidly evolving in multiple areas such as materials and process, speed and complexity, business models from makers to large scale manufacturing. Xilinx SoCs and FPGAs offers a number of decisive advantages for the 3D printer designer and the end user:

  • For designers looking to create a flexible platform that can scale across multiple price points, even different materials and processes but with the same embedded and application architecture, Xilinx is the leader in scalable Industrial IoT platforms by offering heterogeneous embedded processing, I/O flexibility, hardware-based deterministic control, and comprehensive solutions for the lowest total cost of ownership.
  • For designers looking to improve both speed and quality of the process, Xilinx offers precise, deterministic control over a scalable number of axes of motion via fast parallel processing of control loops (e.g. stepper, brushless, extruder).
  • For designers looking to improve deterministic communications across internal subsystems, Xilinx’s comprehensive industrial connectivity portfolio supports diverse traditional Industrial communications, such as multiple iterations of CAN, and Industrial Ethernet standards), including support for Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN), along with common hi-speed communications like USB, PCIe, and others.
  • For designers looking for a single-chip solution capable of integrated human machine interfaces (HMI), machine vision inspection systems with machine learning capabilities, remote diagnostics/control, and other emerging capabilities, Xilinx has a robust selection of in-house and ecosystem solutions
  • For end users that require secure communications of intellectual property sent to a printer, Xilinx offers IEC 62443 cybersecurity built on a hardware root of trust with hardware and software cryptographic accelerators.
