SAN JOSE, CA -- Xilinx, Inc. has joined the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) to collaborate and drive common architectures and frameworks within the Industrial IoT (IIoT). Xilinx's All Programmable, standards-based solutions combine software programmability, real-time processing, hardware optimization, and any-to-any connectivity with security and safety required by IIoT systems. The Industrial Internet Consortium was founded in 2014 by AT&T, Cisco, General Electric, IBM, and Intel to catalyze and coordinate the priorities and enabling technologies of the Industrial Internet.
"We are pleased Xilinx has joined the IIC, offering its experience in FPGA and SoC-based solutions for the development and deployment of Industrial IoT solutions," Dr. Richard Soley, executive director, Industrial Internet Consortium.
"National Instruments is excited that Xilinx has joined the IIC. NI and Xilinx have worked together for well over a decade to help scientists and engineers design and deploy smart systems based on the LabVIEW RIO architecture which consists of a processor, IO, and Xilinx FPGAs," said Jamie Smith, director of embedded systems for NI. "The LabVIEW RIO architecture is ideal for the advanced need of systems designed for the Industrial Internet of Things."
"Xilinx plans to work closely with the IIC member companies to collaborate and drive common architectures and frameworks that leverage both our current technologies and extensive ecosystem," said Dan Isaacs, director of connected systems at Xilinx. "We look forward to joining with industry innovators to further the technology including the safety and security requirements of the Industrial Internet."
