Industrial Functional Safety with Xilinx SoCs

Products for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) must be adaptable. Both the architectural capability to create platforms and the functional ability for awareness about the current situation is essential for modern products. With sufficient processing performance, productivity can be increased, and flexibility can be improved to support scenarios like "lot size=1".

SICK AG presents their brand new nanoScan3 ultra-compact laser scanner with Safety certification, which is built on a single-chip Zynq® Z-7020 embedded subsystem for ISO 13849 PLd, Cat 3. The webinar also includes potential options involving heterogeneous multiprocessing for future architectures. Furthermore, proposals on how to implement situational awareness are covered.

You will learn:

  • Xilinx portfolio of Functional Safety Design Flows
  • How heterogeneous multiprocessing in Zynq-7000 and Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC enable Functional Safety
  • Information about SICK's product implementation with Zynq-7000
  • Limits of Safety with situational awareness
  • Suggestions about the evolution of safe industrial applications
