cpps_no_traspCPPS-Gate40 Sensor simplifies the implementation of advanced data acquisition and industrial networking infrastructures focused on Big Data analytics, M2M solutions and applications for remote monitoring and automation.

CPPS-Gate40 Sensor consists of a modular embedded hardware and software system, designed to offer easy access to a huge variety of field devices through a wide range of industrial interfaces. It is powered by SMARTZynq module and by high availability and synchronization IPs from SoC-e.

This technology is field proven and present in more than 15 countries worldwide.

CPPS-Gate40 Sensor integrates different technologies and protocols to offer a smart gateway solution which allows users to achieve accelerated business development into the IoT environment, merging the plant with the IT world.

Key Features:

The “heart”‘ of the CPPS-Gate40 Sensor is a Xilinx Zynq device. This is the last generation of programmable System-on-Chip platforms. It embeds in the same device a double-core ARM-9 processor and a high-end FPGA section.

SoC-e IP cores provide on the FPGA section of the internal SoC chip flexible and powerful networking capabilities for both the Industrial and the IT Section. Trispeed Legacy Ethernet ports can be combined with high availability “Plug&Work” Ethernet ports based on HSR and PRP zero-delay recovery time redundancy protocols.

IEEE 1588 SoC-e technology for sub-microsecond synchronization integrated on CPPS-Gate40 Sensor offers an “out-of-the-box” for IEEE 1588 implementations. The device can work as Master of the network, Slave and Boundary Clock. Furthermore, all SoC-e switching implementations include TransparentClock functionality ensuring high precision synchronization in different and complex implementations.
