CPU (PLC Controller)

Block diagram


Our integrated circuits and reference designs help you create efficient central processing unit (CPU) modules whether they are run by programmable logic controller (PLC) code, C code or by software on a high-level operating system. We have the ingredients to assess available performances, latencies, heat dissipation, reliability data and wiring protection.

Design requirements:

CPU (PLC controller) systems often require:

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) edge processing, time-sensitive networking (TSN) and OPC Unified Architecture.
  • Scalable solutions for processing and industrial networking.
  • Functional-safety readiness, robustness and/or EMI/EMC resilience.
