Industry 4.0: Manufacturing Convergence

Industrial convergence requires smarter systems. Explore the latest in adaptive manufacturing and industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions. Be inspired to improve their productivity using information that leads to integration, automation, and faster time to market. By delivering “intelligence at the edge,” we partner with you to evolve Industry 4.0—and beyond.

See our most inspired IIoT solution to date—the new Go-IO reference design. It packs 20 configurable IOs in a space one-third the size of a credit card and unleashes the full power of the IIoT, enabling productivity-enhancing self-diagnostic capabilities in automated factory subsystems. It meets the increasingly stringent size and power requirements of PLCs, providing a 10x smaller solution with 50% less power consumption compared to its industry-leading predecessor, the Pocket IO.

During electronica 2018, come by to see these product demonstrations—and get a closer look at how our innovations are changing the manufacturing industry:

  • Integrated soccer ball factory demonstrating Industry 4.0 principles
  • Digital IO
  • IO-Link
  • Robust communications
  • Digital isolation
  • Isolated power and protection
  • Thermal demonstration of synchronous 60V DC-DC converters
  • uSLIC power modules

Wearable Healthcare: Wellness Reimagined

Wearable healthcare is transforming, again. More than something fun to wear, new monitoring devices are enabling healthcare professionals to use them as virtual care devices enabling more real-time exchange of accurate health data, assessment of chronic conditions, and evaluation of overall well-being.

For the first time, designers can achieve continuous monitoring of ECG, heart rate, and temperature in highly accurate, wearable solutions using Health Sensor Platform 2.0 (HSP 2.0). Unlike other wearables, the data measurements collected by the HSP 2.0 can be owned by the wearer, alleviating data privacy concerns and allowing users to conduct their own data analysis. And the fully working hardware and firmware with companion watch casing cuts design and validation time by up to six months.

Become familiar with our ever-evolving Health Sensor Platform that delivers flexibility and speed in the creation of unique and highly accurate wellness applications.

During electronica 2018, we will be sharing the following product demonstrations to give you a closer look at how our innovations are changing the healthcare industry:

  • Interactive motion-sensory experience with personalized wearable healthcare
  • In-ear heart-rate monitor
  • Health Sensor Platform 2.0
  • ECG monitor and health band
  • Power management IC for wearables
  • Vital sign monitoring with blood pressure

Automotive: Driving Redefined

Cameras, sensors, microprocessors, and other components for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are becoming more prevalent, making the ability to manage power even more critical. Add to this, the need to ensure that safety functions consistently operate properly.

Our automotive-qualified voltage regulators, power management ICs (PMICs) and power protectors address these ADAS power requirements while achieving CISPR 25 Class 5 EMI standard compliance—with high efficiency and a smaller footprint. With smaller solutions, we can enable a high level of integration and mitigate the effects of electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Experience our newest power and battery management products, high-speed signaling components, sensors, and wireless communications devices.

LED lighting designers face increasing power, thermal, and design complexities. Which is why we’re proud to introduce our newest LED matrix manager. The MAX20092 12-switch matrix manager allows designers to migrate to higher current devices while reducing solution size and improving flexibility. It offers the industry’s lowest on-resistance internal switches and reduces thermal issues, complexity, and design costs associated with LED matrix lighting applications. With the MAX20092, you can simplify LED programmability, reduce taxation on system bus lines, enable LED current of up to 1.5A, and reduce EMI and noise.

Experience our newest power and battery management products, high-speed signaling components, sensors, and wireless communications devices. During electronica 2018, see these demonstrations for a closer look at how our innovations are changing the automotive industry:

  • Automotive-grade USB
  • Power management for eCall applications
  • Security and authentication of automotive sensors
