Analog Devices’ Single Chip, Multi-Protocol Switch Reduces Size and Power of Deterministic Ethernet for Intelligent Factory Applications

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) introduced today a Real-time Ethernet, Multi-protocol (REM) switch chip as part of its new generation of high performance, deterministic Ethernet connectivity solutions for connected motion and Intelligent Factory applications. The fido5000, developed by ADI’s Deterministic Ethernet Technology Group (formally Innovasic), reduces board size and power consumption while improving Ethernet performance at the node under any network load condition. It is ideally suited for synchronised, connected motion applications such as robotics and attaches to ADI’s ADSP-SC58x, ADSP-2158x and ADSP-CM40x motion control processors bringing EtherCAT, PROFINET IRT, and POWERLINK connectivity. Cycle times below 125µs are easily achievable and the chip comes with drivers to simplify integration with any Industrial Ethernet protocol stack.
