Industrial Automation Systems
are getting smaller, yet require more performance and lower energy consumption
The complexity of the modern factory has brought intense demand for precision and efficiency in the machines, control systems and communications required for it to operate. The cost of error has driven more and more factories to automate as many of their processes as possible. With this push towards automation, microcontrollers (MCUs) play a key role — particularly in sensor communication networks, and equipment monitoring.
