Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs Enable Wuhan Maxsine's EP3E Servo Drive

January 15, 2014

Wuhan Maxsine significantly reduced design cycles and greatly accelerated time to market

SAN JOSE, CA - Xilinx, Inc. announced that its Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC family enabled Wuhan Maxsine's EP3E servo drives. By taking advantage of the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs ARM® dual-core Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processing system with tightly coupled programmable logic, Wuhan Maxsine, China's leading servo drive control solutions provider, significantly reduced design cycles and accelerated time to market. Wuhan Maxsine Electric first launched and demonstrated POWERLINK EP3E series servo drives in November at China International Industry Fair 2013 (CIIF 2013). Based on Ethernet technology, POWERLINK is an ideal solution for applications in industrial robotics, CNC, textile, packaging, printing, electronic assembly or logistics transportation industry.

"The highly-integrated Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC is the key element behind the success of our new product shipment. We needed a cost-effective, yet extremely powerful one-chip solution to meet the harsh performance requirements of our applications," said Du Jiaxing, R&D director of Wuhan Maxsine. "The dual-core ARM processor, rich I/O and integrated DSP slices provide us with the high-performance computing, key interconnection and powerful processing capability we needed to bring our EP3E series servo drives to market."

"We are very happy that our Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC platform enabled Wuhan Maxsine to become the first POWERLINK servo drive provider in China," said Barrie Mullins, director of SoC product management and marketing for Xilinx. "The Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC provides all the necessary hardware, design tools, IP cores, and reference designs making it the ideal platform to bring continued innovation to the industrial automation industry."
