Delivering expert perspectives on flexible manufacturing in new eBook

22-04-2024 | Mouser Electronics | Test & Measurement

Mouser has announced a new eBook in collaboration with Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), focusing on how a flexible manufacturing approach can help production facilities achieve greater throughput, product quality, and cost-efficiency than ever before.

In '10 Experts on Flexible Manufacturing', subject matter experts from ADI and other technology companies examine how today's sensors, robotic subsystems, and AI-enabled compute units permit factories to adapt fabrication and production with more flexibility. This allows production facilities to achieve greater throughput, product quality and cost-efficiency. At the same time, improved processes and control can enable a more sustainable manufacturing process that wastes less energy and materials. The eBook also highlights many of ADI's products that help bring flexible manufacturing to life.

The EVAL-ADTF3175D-NXZ ToF evaluation kit showcases the ADTF3175 ToF module with ADI's ADSD3500 image signal processor, which is available to order. The ADTF3175 ToF module allows industrial applications, from robot manipulation to machine vision, object avoidance, and object measurement.

The GMSL Serializer and Deserializer products, such as the MAX96717 and MAX96724, are robust and simple solutions that facilitate advanced sensing and perception for autonomous applications. These devices permit the connection of MIPI CSI-2 cameras and sensors to the application's processor over a single cable, along with real-time, high-bandwidth forward data from the sensors, bidirectional control and power signals. Extra features, such as reference clocks over reverse, adaptive equalisation, and so on, can also be employed to simplify the system design while maintaining very high levels of data integrity.

The ADXL359 MEMS IMU is designed to integrate accurate, multi-axis inertial sensing into industrial systems. All necessary motion testing and calibration are part of the production process at the factory, greatly reducing system integration time.

Data security is a critical concern in flexible manufacturing, especially given its reliance on communication. The MAXQ1065 and DS28S60 DeepCover cryptographic controller and coprocessor can be crucial in ensuring that only authorised entities can access sensitive data on the factory floor.
