EtherCAT Technology Group brings everyone who works with EtherCAT together to improve the technology. Moreover, all members work together to keep EtherCAT stable and interoperable. The result is a single fieldbus technology that’s compatible with most of the industries’ leading technology.
CAN in Automation (CiA) is the group of international users and manufacturers for the CAN network. The nonprofit organization was established in 1992 with the goal to provide an unbiased platform for future developments of the CAN protocol and to promote the image of CAN bus technology.
Microsemi Corporation and Trinamic partnered up to develop scalable, low-power and secure designs and services for EtherCAT and motion control solutions. The result provides IP, software, and design services to target an EtherCAT solution for Microsemi’s SmartFusion2 system-on-chip (SoC) FPGAs.
RISC-V is a new instruction set architecture (ISA) designed to be scalable for a wide variety of applications. It’s easy to implement and has an open source license. This, together with Microsemi’s products offering RISC-V, makes it interesting for Trinamic to explore new possibilities using RISC-V.
Motion Control & Motor Association (MCMA) was founded in 2006. The aim is to advance the global understanding and use of motion control and related automation technologies and to help its members and the industry to grow by means of research, educational workshops and networking events.
