ASIC design service and IP provider, Faraday Technology, has announced that it has won and delivered several factory automation related ASIC projects, supporting real-time Ethernet, EtherCAT, Profibus, and PLC controllers. In each case, Faraday employs its value-added ASIC and IP customisation service for power-performance optimisation and product lifecycle management to meet factory automation needs within Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) scenarios.
Since 2003, Faraday has provided customised hardware interfaces and IP designs to fulfil system bus expendability, low latency, and data accuracy, required by industrial computer peripherals and factory automation systems. For instance, Faraday’s customised Ethernet PHY can support high data transmission accuracy in 120-meter long cable, with an accuracy rate superior to the industry standard.
In addition, these chips take advantage of Faraday’s comprehensive ASIC service from design to manufacturing, along with contractual 20-year project database retention agreements and long product lifecycle support guarantees, tailor-made for industrial quality and stability requirements.
“Faraday’s proven factory automation related ASICs meet the highest levels of compliance with industry standards, synchronising real-time clocks with nanosecond accuracy to support leading industrial control systems,” said Flash Lin, Chief Operating Officer of Faraday. “The device-to-device communication accuracy is a key factor in the success of these projects, enabling high-speed inspection, motion position and velocity control in the smart factory arena. Leveraging our innovative ASIC expertise, we continue to work with our customers to support the growing demand for high-performance factory automation solutions, now and in the future.”
