Mitsubishi Electric’s Next-Generation MELSEC iQ-R Collection C Controller Powered by Altera SoCs to Enable Smarter Factories

The Science of Traffic: Can IoT Help End Congestion? - IoT - Internet of  Things

Altera Company introduced today Mitsubishi Electric picked Altera Cyclone V SoCs to power its next-generation of C controller for usage in wise factory automation equipment. Cyclone V SoCs provide the C controller greater flexibility while supplying greater performance, enhanced capability, as well as boosted network connection when contrasted to the previous generation’s microcontroller-based systems.

Mitsubishi Electric C controllers are utilized in a diverse range of manufacturing facility automation systems to boost dependability while delivering a cost-efficient option to industrial PCs. The C controller is a highly versatile controller based on the MELSEC open system design that can execute C as well as C++ language programs. Altera Cyclone V SoCs furnish the MELSEC iQ-R Collection C Controller with a completely new level of programs as well as system migration versatility which makes it possible for customers to tailor both the FPGA hardware and the ARM dual-core Cortex A9 processor incorporated in the Cyclone V SoC to fulfill their system demands.

The C controllers have the ability to meet the needs of manufacturing facility automation equipment by providing superb dependability, tolerance of extreme settings as well as lasting supply. Leveraging Altera’s Cyclone V SoCs in our MELSEC iQ-R Series C Controller enables it to considerably boost the controller’s capabilities while at the same time offering individuals a very easy movement course from conventional MCU-based commercial controllers.

Cyclone V SoCs incorporate a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU with a low-priced, low-power 28 nm FPGA. This extremely adaptable combination gives the efficiency as well as the environment of an applications-class ARM CPU with the system management, as well as hardware velocity capabilities of an FPGA. Cyclone V SoCs make it possible for the C controller to provide both superb network connection and high-performance handling capacities that are capable of supporting the large amounts of data being collected, as well as refined in contemporary smart factories.
