EtherSynch - Synchronization Perfected
March 01, 2012 // Mike Jones, Micrel // 0 commentsDownload White Paper 267Ko
Next-generation Industrial Automation Systems are increasingly being architected around distributed, high-performance networks that blend low-messaging latencies, flexible topologies, and integrated timing. Several so-called Industrial Ethernet frameworks are emerging based on standard Ethernet communications tightly coupled with IEEE 1588v2 (also known as IEEE 1588-2008) distributed synchronization. Micrel's EtherSynch™ product family provides systems designers with the most highly integrated IEEE 1588v2 network attachment device available, significantly reducing the physical form factor, power consumption, as well as overall BOM costs. This paper examines the implications of integrating Ethernet and IEEE 1588v2 for Industrial Automation, the Micrel's EtherSynch™ product architecture and benefits for Industrial Ethernet networks.

This month, Cherry is giving away five of its Energy Harvesting Evaluation kits, worth over 266 Euros each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win. Cherry's energy harvesting technology benefit mostly applications where a complex wire assembly and/or batteries would be inappropriate.
The required RF-energy is created by the mechanical actuation of the switch and the data is transmitted wirelessly using RF-technology. The technology is very easy to install, fit and forget, with two standardised package versions for industrial applications: a rocker switch for actuation by hand and a snap-action switch for mechanical actuation.MORE INFO AND LAST MONTH' WINNERS...
