Analogue integration fuels factory integration

Keywords:analogue  mixed-signal ICs  computational resources  factory information 

Advances in analogue and mixed-signal ICs have contributed greatly to unprecedented combinations of factory productivity, efficiency, quality, and safety. These ICs enable higher system performance, increasingly accurate measurements, robust communication, lower power, and higher levels of security. They are central to factory systems that act rapidly on large numbers of sensor-based measurements that precisely control material handling, processing steps, power and temperature, and operational safety.

When computational resources are integrated into these analogue and mixed-signal ICs, the factory can deploy a distributed intelligence model. Factory data can now interface more readily with business-management systems. This integrated factory model, comprising many of the techniques and technologies, makes factory information available worldwide in real time to supply chain, sales, logistics, and senior management.
