 netX Roadmap

Network Controller:

The network controller family is the intelligent solution for implementing all proven Fieldbus and Real-time Ethernet systems in a minimum of space. The diversity and flexibility of this controller enable you to implement any type of use case needed in factory automation, thereby opening the doors to all industrial automation markets.

Regardless of whether drive controls with high demands on synchronization and very low cycle times, traditional I/O systems for the field or complex controllers with visualization and communication, the different netX controllers available in various performance classes offer the appropriate platform for any case of application.

Independent of how the netX controllers are applied, they sustainably ensure your company's market position and in the long-term, assist you in staying on top of state-of-the-art industrial communication.

Network Access Controller:

The network access controller with multiprotocol and switch capability extends the functionality of embedded host processors by bringing tailored hardware features for industrial communication and system network to application designs. This novel companion chip is based upon the successful netX family and intended for use by customers who wish to fully control and run their software protocol stack at the host site.

Automation Platform:

The upcoming netX 4000 from Hilscher enables more integration for a given envelope by incorporating two different system paradigms in one chip that address the needs of industrial markets. The automation platform on-chip brings together an ARM Cortex™-A9 dual-core with an infrastructure for highly advanced user-facing applications and an ARM Cortex™-R7 with an underlying netX technology for deeply embedded real-time applications coupled with industrial communication tasks. Therefore, the netX 4000 from Hilscher is the ideal System-on-Chip (SoC) for your automation platform to make use of embedded visualization, industrial control and system network.
