Maxim to showcase adaptive manufacturing, wearables and automotive solutions
At electronica, Maxim Integrated Products will showcase compact, intelligent and power-reducing solutions in manufacturing convergence, wearable healthcare and automotive, along with the company’s high-performance building blocks.
Industrial convergence is driving the needs for increasingly intelligent and efficient automated factories. At electronica, Maxim will highlight semiconductor innovations designed to bring greater manufacturing control throughout the digital factory, intelligent buildings and refineries. Live demonstrations related to Industry 4.0 include integrated soccer ball factory demonstrating Industry 4.0 principles and digital IO, IO-Link and Universal IO that bring intelligence to the factory edge.
Building a wearable healthcare product for the wrist that can provide real-time exchange of accurate health data, assessment of chronic conditions and evaluation of overall well-being can be challenging and time-consuming. Maxim’s Health Sensor Platform 2.0 brings the ability to monitor electrocardiogram, heart rate and body temperature to a wrist-worn wearable, saving up to six months in development time.
More efficient power management is an imperative for automotive manufacturers as they accelerate adoption of cameras, sensors, microprocessors, LEDs and other electronic components for advanced driver assistance systems, high-performance lighting and infotainment. Maxim’s MAX20092 matrix manager accelerates adoption of higher-current LEDs in front lighting applications. Automotive demonstration highlights include automotive-grade USB charging, reliable back-up power for emergency eCall applications, greater security and authentication for ADAS sensors.
A relentless desire to innovate across broad application areas is driving the need for ultra-low power consumption, precise data conversion and rugged connectivity. Maxim technology experts will also have multiple talks at the conference covering the application and technology areas discussed above.
