The future of the semiconductor industry
The future prospects for the semiconductor industry are quite positive, with a projected growth of around 9% in 2022. However, the industry is repeatedly faced with supply bottlenecks due to the effects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, amongst other factors. By developing a new comX communication module, especially suited for the semiconductor industry, Hilscher is supporting to cope with the current situation.
25 years Embedded Modules from Hilscher
Hilscher communication modules have been used in industrial automation by a number of successful companies for over 25 years. Their ability to support all leading Real-Time Ethernet protocols as master or slave in exactly one design is very popular with manufacturers of automation devices, such as robot controllers, PLCs or drives.
Hilscher's "comX" standard is based on a well-thought-out platform strategy. All comX modules have the same dimensions and are pin-compatible. Thus, the user can cover the complete range of all industrial protocols with a single motherboard design. Thanks to standardized interfaces, it is possible to react quickly and flexibly to new market requirements, saving the maximum in time and costs.
