Modernized Operator Panels for the Era of Industrial IoT

From Operator Panels in Factory Automation to Patient Monitors in Healthcare, IoT principles are changing the landscape of Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) of all types. These principles are naturally extending cybersecurity and functional safety to these hubs of visualized information, while also mixing cloud and local data. Furthermore, the rise of edge computing is driving HMIs to evolve beyond merely a display and I/O tool toward supporting intelligent and interactive analysis of this distributed data.

Xilinx Zynq SoCs offer platform scalability supporting a wide range of visualization and analysis applications from mixed criticality controllers with integrated and cost-constrained industrial displays to dedicated, feature-rich, and customized GL Studio HMIs without compromise for safety critical systems.  HMIs, like most other modern industrial equipment, mandate support for IEC 62443 security, IEC 61508 SIL 3 safety, extended lifecycle, reliability over harsh environments, small power and physical footprint, and compatibility with enterprise-wide embedded software architectures and networks as table stakes—all points that serve as well-known evidence why Xilinx Zynq SoCs are the industry's top choice for embedded industrial platforms.  This webinar will explore the capability for Zynq programmable SoCs to generate engaging 3D graphics for a better user experience without impacting aforementioned functions.


In this Webinar, learn about the following:

  • Brief overview of the capabilities of Zynq SoCs to support a wide range of HMI and other industrial applications
  • Zynq UltraScale+ dedicated GPU support for GL Studio, which enable user interface (UI) developers to build world-class, high fidelity, safety critical 2D and 3D graphics
  • Xilinx SoCs enable on-chip support for analytics, machine learning, and other forms of edge compute to support critical decisions in real-time with lowest latency in parallel to visualization

Next step on how to enhance the level of reliability, interactivity, and sophistication for both safety critical and non-safety critical HMIs
