netX – our communication processor family. Together with our wide range of software packages for all fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols and standards, our netX communication processors are the foundation for your network-integrated field devices, drives and controllers. Whether as a design-in solution or a ready-to-use communication component, netX technology is the heart of our product portfolio. From PC cards to modules and gateways, you always have a unified API interface for simple and standardized integration into your applications.
The multiprotocol capability of our chips makes them unique on the market. All you have to do is reload the protocol stacks as part of our firmware in order to switch from one standard to another. This allows you to communicate across a wide range of industrial networks with a single piece of hardware. netX hardware and software are from a single source. This allows you to minimize development risks and reduce the number of necessary external interfaces, and you also stay up to date on the latest industry standards and certifications. It also allows you to stay focused on your own processes and applications, while we take care of the communication.
The selection of our development semiconductor processes from major manufacturers such as Renesas and TSMC ensures reliablility and long-term availability of all components.
