Digi-Key – Flexible input deterministic output (FIDO) 32-Bit real-time comms controller (Innovasic - FIDO1100)Jun 22 2012 - Semiconductors [More Semiconductors Articles]
Innovasic’s FIDO1100 is the first product in the FIDO family of real-time communication controllers – and is now available from Digi-Key. The FIDO communication controller architecture is ‘uniquely optimized’ for solving memory bottlenecks, and is designed from the ground up for deterministic processing. Critical timing parameters, such as context switching and interrupt latency, are precisely predictable for real-time tasks.
The FIDO1100 incorporates the Universal I/O Controller (UIC) that is configurable to support various communication protocols across multiple platforms. This flexibility relieves the designer of the task of searching product matrices to find the set of peripherals that most closely match the system interface needs. The Software Profiling and Integrated Debug EnviRonment (SPIDER) has extensive real-time code debug capabilities without the burden of code instrumentation.
The RapID Platform for Industrial Ethernet from Innovasic Semiconductor takes the risk out of adding an Industrial Ethernet interface to your product. The RapID Platform uses the Innovasic FIDO1100R Communication Controller – a single chip that supports EtherNet/IP, Profinet, and TCP/IP with no changes to the hardware design – only a firmware change. A single circuit board design enables your product to support TCP/IP, EtherNet/IP, and Profinet, says the company.More news from Digikey
