Manufacturing and Intelligent Production

Manufacturing and Intelligent Production keep us competitive in world markets regardless of where we are located on the globe. By using high quality and low cost microcontrollers to build intelligent control into the manufacturing process, the quality of manufactured goods can be increased and the cost reduced. DSPnano and Unison are ideally suited to work as controllers in this environment due to their tiny footprint, Linux compatibility, broad set of off the shelf components and rapid development.

In industrial control applications, controllers offer the ability to do three fundemental things:

  • Sense the environment
    Temperature, pressure, time, position, velocity, acceleration, viscostiy, conductiivity, inductance, capacitance, vibration, noise, current, voltage, energy.
  • Actuate something like a valve or solonoid
  • Spin a motor
  • Position a joint or motor
  • Communicate results
  • Provide control

In this world, DSPnano and Unison can play a key role in the areas of intelligent sensors, motion and motor drives, communication networks, and low level control.

Typical products include:

  • Hydraulic Sensors
  • Pressure Sensors
  • Temperature Sensors
  • Motion Control
  • Motor Control
  • CAN
  • USB
  • TCP
  • Timing recovery
  • Motion estimation
  • Image compression
  • Filtering
  • Fourier Transforms
  • Noise Reduction

Manufacturing and Industrial control solutions are highly suitable for the application of the Unison and DSPnano Operating Systems.
