Sitara as a Smart Servo Drive Training Series

Although motor drives have been around for many years, trends in Industry 4.0 such as TSN, industrial IoT, and functional safety are revolutionizing the role a drive takes in the Smart Factory. Where typically its main function was to drive a motor, a servo drive now must include other features to conform with the needs of Industry 4.0. This paired with the rapid growth of the robotics market has created a need for Smart Servo drives with multi-axis capabilities. This created a rapid jump in performance requirements and has caused manufacturers to start looking at higher performance processors, like Sitara, for their next generation drives. This session will explore this trend toward Sitara-based designs and introduce some Smart Servo system concepts with the AM6x.
