How New ARM Technology Will Impact Factory Automation System Design & Capabilities

This presentation from The Automation Conference 2013 explains how advances in embedded technologies matter to both automation technology developers as well as end users. For example, the entire digital electronics of a drive, including the control function, the communication function and custom interfaces can now be implemented on a single chip.

The presenter is Suhel Dhanani from the Industrial Business Unit at Altera, a manufacturer of programmable logic integrated circuits.
