Net Pi Mix

In March 2019, I reported on Hilscher’s release of its netPI industrialized Raspberry Pi 3 B platform. This open-source computing platform is housed in an industrial-grade enclosure with a hardened board design. Hilscher offers two versions of the platform, one using the standard Raspberry Pi core and the other with a Pi core along with Hilscher’s netX chip for connection to real-time industrial networks. According to Hilscher, the netPI can be used as a simple controller or a powerful programmable logic controller when used with the CoDeSys package for IEC 61131-3 programming.
