Manufacturing operations and measurement processes are the main tasks performed at this level.
Actuation, Motor Control, Fieldbus are the most important “tools” to carry out such complex tasks.
Main product families here involved are:
- 8 and 32-bit MCUs
- Specific motor control ICs and drivers
- Power MOSFETs and IGBTs
- Smart communication interfaces (i.e. dedicated control units hosting the field stack)
As a general trend, solutions, also in the form of dedicated ICs, have been developed with the support of our valued partners, especially for field, real-time based communication.
