Industrial automation focuses on the accelerated expansion of factory and plant monitoring and control systems. Automation improves workers' safety and reduces fatigue as well as increases productivity. Furthermore, it shortens manufacturing cycle times and lowers production costs
while minimizing equipment downtime.
In addition to the momentum already pushing Industry 4.0 adoption, the COVID-19 crisis has dramatically accelerated the adoption rate as it became not only a process improvement but, in many cases, the only solution due to mandated closures and social distancing requirements.
Several critical Industrial Automation technologies have emerged as essential technologies enabling Industry 4.0, including Machine Vision and LiDAR sensing. onsemi has compelling Machine Vision and LiDAR sensing solutions that enable edge and cloud AI-based processing and sensing.
Our image sensor portfolio offers resolutions from VGA to 50.1 megapixels, frame rates between 1 to 815 fps, optical formats from 1/13 inch to 645 medium format and rolling to global shutter image performance.
Bluetooth® Low Energy
With its inherent power efficiency and availability in smartphones, Bluetooth® Low Energy is the premiere short-range wireless protocol for IoT.
Gate Driver Solutions
Every switch needs a gate driver. Gate Driver Products are the interface between control signals (from a digital or analog controller) and power switches (IGBTs, MOSFETs, SiC MOSFETs, and GaN HEMTs).
Power Module Solutions
Power modules are important building blocks in power conversion and motor control applications having power ratings of 100 W to 100 kW. Solar and UPS systems use power modules to boost the voltage from the solar panels and batteries to a suitable DC voltage.
Wide Bandgap Solutions
Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) are the next generation materials for high performance power conversion and electric vehicle. These wide bandgap (WBG) materials will power future applications for high performance.
