INTEGRATED COMMUNICATION & CONTROL: CUSTOM CONFIGURABLE SYSTEM-ON-CHIPS

SOMANET-SoC-Illu_2016-web

Synapticon SOMANET Chips integrate dedicated industrial communication, sensor data acquisition and motor control in a single device. They provide best-in-class performance* and ultimate flexibility for your application. Select from a broad range of SOMANET Soft IP Blocks to configure your custom System-on-Chip. Designing smart industrial appliances, advanced servo drives, devices for the internet of things or consumer products with motion features has just become

much faster and affordable. Being based on XMOS and ARM processor architectures, the devices offer highly parallel, hard real-time processor cores that can be programmed in C, C++ and XC. Using SOMANET Chips a board design can be easily scaled by adding more instances of an application to a System-on-Chip. If more resources are required than a single device can offer, multiple devices can be connected through xConnect technology.

SOMANET SOC SOFT IP BLOCKS

This table shows the current selection of Soft IP Blocks that are available to configure custom SOMANET System-on-Chips. Depending on the chosen Base Device (see below), a single Chip offers space for a multitude of IP Blocks. Pricing depends on the Soft IP configuration (sum of Soft IP Credits) and the chosen Base Device.

EVALUATION & DEVELOPMENT KITS

Synapticon SOMANET Core Modules are based on SOMANET SOCs. That means the whole SOMANET Modules Portfolio serves as an evaluation and development platform, before your own board design is ready. When designing a SOMANET SOC board for a series product, you can get access to SOMANET Modules Schematics and Layouts to derive your own design from.
