Industrial Automation Applications for Custom ASICs

In the industrial and manufacturing sectors, today’s automation processes are primarily driven by advanced sensor technology — which is in turn made possible through the use of custom integrated circuit (IC) chips.

Automation is revolutionizing the industrial and manufacturing industries. Automating production provides a way for manufacturers to implement smarter and more time-efficient processes, while also increasing employee safety and streamlining and simplifying quality control.

At ASIC North, we’re dedicated to providing industrial customers with the custom integrated chip solutions they need to implement high-tech automation solutions into their day-to-day processes. From designing chips for temperature sensors to supporting energy-efficient lighting solutions, ASIC North has all of the necessary capabilities to meet your industrial automation needs with a fully integrated solution.

What Is Industrial Automation?

Industrial automation refers to the process of automating industrial applications, usually through sensor technology. Most industrial automation processes involve using computer-based sensors to identify, analyze and measure physical presences or environmental conditions and produce specific outputs in response to what they detect — a process that occurs automatically. Industrial automation also requires IC chip solutions to perform most of its required functions.

Examples of industrial automation applications include:

  • Increased manufacturing consistency and product quality control
  • The use of lighting automation for energy efficiency
  • Automatic temperature control applications

ASIC North is a leader in providing industrial and manufacturing companies with custom chip solutions for sensors in both the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and more traditional Industrial applications.
