Adding IIoT capability to existing industrial automation systems is a complex process, as we have to balance the communications and security issues (IT) of the IoT with the operational and deterministic needs (OT) of industrial processes. This class will look at a representative high-end gateway solution, the Renesas RZ-N1. It uses a multicore chip and internal gateway that is capable of handling the intense traffic and timing needs of the industrial side as well as the security and communications needs of the IoT. Examples of coding for both sides will be demonstrated.

October 26 – Day 5 – Writing and Testing Our Application

Now that we have our communication I/O designed, we will build and test a representative solution for our Industrial Internet of Things design in our final class. We also will look at how we can implement the safety and security features that will be needed for a robust IIoT solution.

October 24 – Day 3 - Many Protocols, One Abstraction - GOAL

Meeting the challenge of designing an industrial controller or IIoT gateway is a daunting process when we are faced with multiple industrial Ethernet protocols. In our third class, we will look at the Generic Open Abstraction Layer (GOAL) from PORT GmbH. Provided by Renesas as middleware for their...

October 23 – Day 2- Introduction to the RZ/N1

In our second class, we will investigate an innovative example circuit for interfacing with the myriad industrial Ethernet standards: the Renesas RZ/N1D chip and its development board set. The RZ/N1D is a multiprocessor system-on-a-chip that provides dual ARM Cortex-A7 cores for application...

October 22 – Day 1 - The Challenges of IIoT and Industrial Ethernet

Today, factories and production facilities are becoming more advanced in order to improve productivity and safety. These advances are based on converting to open or Ethernet network communication. Several technical requirements demanded of the equipment used at factories include support for open...
