The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA), which promotes the widespread usage of the CC-Link open industrial network family, has announced that Analog Devices (ADI) has become a CLPA Board Member. Through active participation in CLPA management, ADI aims to expand its business globally, especially in the Asian region, where the CC-Link family is a de-facto standard. The company expects to now be fully involved with CLPA board activities and will join promotional activities to increase their presence and sales to the world from the vital Asian manufacturing market.
Background on ADI-CLPA cooperation
ADI is a leading global high-performance analog technology company that enables customers to interpret the world around us by intelligently bridging the physical and digital with unmatched technologies that sense, measure, power, connect and interpret. Recently, ADI introduced a Scalable Ethernet Switch for Industrial Ethernet in response to increasing demand for this technology in the global automation market. As part of their commitment to the CLPA, ADI plans CC-Link IE TSN implementation on their Scalable Ethernet Switch.
The CLPA’s key technology is CC-Link IE TSN, which is the first open Industrial Ethernet to combine gigabit Ethernet with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) technology . ADI has maintained a leadership role in the development of TSN technology for automation applications. Hence their decision to join the board of the CLPA indicates the company’s belief in the potential of CC-Link IE TSN globally. CC-Link IE TSN implementation on their Scalable Ethernet Switch will further increase the range of development options available to vendors looking to add the protocol to their portfolio. The CLPA expects that this in turn will further contribute to their rapidly increasing global market share. Working with their partners, the CLPA is continuously promoting CC-Link IE TSN to increase its adoption globally.
