ADEPT & Simulink Integration

The ADEPT Framework, ADI’s industrial data and control software platform, has been designed from the ground up for seamless integration with many of the most powerful and advanced applications in model-based systems engineering. There is perhaps no tool in this realm that has become as ubiquitous as Simulink, by the MathWorks.

Open Process Automation Standard (O-PAS)

In late 2019, the Open Process Automation Standard (O-PAS) Version 1.0 was published by The Open Group to standardize distributed, virtual and real-time computation, for Industrial Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. Since then, O-PAS has become the prevailing standard for US industrial open automation and distributed computation.

Improving Collaboration for Cyber-Physical Product Development with FMI/FMU

Improved cyber-physical product development reduces technology integration costs, helps manage technology risk, and reduces cost over the entire software life-cycle. FMI technology can improve efficiency and reduce integration time of collaborative cyber-physical development and can better protect intellectual property shared in the collaboration.
