The netX 4000 from Hilscher enables more integration in a smaller space to fulfi ll the requirements of the industrial automation market. The design brings together a Cortex®-A9 dual-core processor with an infrastructure for highly advanced user applications and a Cortex®-R7 processor with an underlying netX technology for real-time industrial communications and applications.
Therefore, the netX 4000 from Hilscher is the ideal system-on-chip (SoC) for your automation platform in the field of visualization, industrial control, and real-time communication. The Cortex®-A9 dual-core, with up to 3000 DMIPS, caches and external memory interfaces, is most suitable for general purpose operating systems (GPOS) such as Linux. The enhanced connectivity is shared by all Cortex®® processors and grants access to USB 2.0, PCI Express® Base 2, and Gigabit Ethernet.
The implemented security unit provides a set of cryptographic algorithms for secure boot and secure communication.
The concurrent, dual LCD option features one high-end version with 2D acceleration and one additional lower resolutions interface.
The Cortex®-R7, with its 1000 DMIPS real-time profi le and dedicated low latency SRAM, is used for the real-time operating system (RTOS) and embedded protocol stacks from Hilscher. The xC subsystem, with its inherent fl exibility, interfaces traditional Fieldbus technologies and all major Real-Time Ethernet systems, and supports in use with other on-chip resources the provision of gateway and port-switch functions.
