XMOS and Synapticon Announce Partnership to Accelerate the Uptake of Next-Generation Motion Control Technologies in Robotics, Smart Factories and Autonomous Vehicles
Jun 4 14
XMOS and Synapticon announced a partnership that will dramatically accelerate the uptake of next-generation motion control technologies in the fast growing areas of robotics, smart factories and autonomous vehicles. The two companies are working together to support emerging trends such as Industry 4.0 in the $170 billion factory automation market as well as the fast growing service robotics market. The partnership includes joint development, support and marketing initiatives that will help designers combine multiple computational elements, sensors and actuators in a new category of applications often known as cyber-physical systems. As part of the agreement, XMOS will market a range of development platforms based on Synapticon's SOMANET hardware and software modules. These products will allow embedded developers to realize a broad range of intelligent control tasks, ranging from simple and efficient BLDC motor control to sophisticated distributed real-time computing and control systems. Ultimately the companies plan to jointly provide single-chip silicon solutions and system-level intellectual property that will support the next generation of intelligent embedded devices. The new partnership builds on the already strong relationship between the two companies, which has seen Synapticon base its complete range of SOMANET products on the xCORE range of multicore microcontrollers from XMOS.
OPPO Digital Selects XMOS for its Audiophile Products
Apr 14 14
XMOS announced that its xCORE high-definition USB audio solutions are in use in a range of audio-visual products from OPPO Digital. OPPO products such as the multi-BDP-105D Universal Audiophile 3D Blu-Ray Disc Player use xCORE technology to deliver the bit-perfect digital audio demanded by present discerning consumers. The BDP-105D turns any computer into a high performing multi-media source by converting advanced digital signals, transmitted via USB, to analog audio. It supports DSD in standard rate (DSD64) or double rate (DSD128 or DSD 2x) via its dedicated USB DAC input, with asynchronous audio clocking enabled by xCORE technology. The result is jitter-free operation and outstanding sound quality. The BDP-105D supports a wide variety of audio content formats, including lossless FLAC and WAV files: if a computer can play it, the BDP-105D can convert it to analog. XMOS USB audio solutions are based on the xCORE range of multi core microcontrollers, a programmable platform that allows software designers to configure a device with exactly the combination of interfaces they require. xCORE devices also work in a completely deterministic way, making them ideal for a broad range of industrial, consumer and automotive applications, including high-definition digital audio.
