Edge Computing with SmartEdge ASICs
Data retrieval of factory automation settings must happen in real-time to optimize the decision making process. With the number of sensors used in factories increasing exponentially, information processing needs to be performed as close to the sensor edge as possible to achieve the lowest possible latency. This drives the need for processing solutions that meet the performance requirements but are also small, cost effective and low in power.
Introducing the SmartEdge ASIC platform from Dialog. With SmartEdge, you can select the specific requirements you have for Analog processing, Control, Memory and Communications and have a unique custom ASIC delivered that meets all your factory automation requirements.
