Waterford, Ireland -- Embedded Labs has announced its OPC-UA (Unified Architecture) Embedded Device Server Software Stack. The stack minimizes development cost, time to market and bill of materials cost for OEMs that want to add OPC-UA Server functionality to their products. It was demonstrated at SPS/IPC/Drives 2010 in Nuremberg, Germany running on a low-cost ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller with 64kB RAM in conjunction with GraphWorX64 from ICONICS.
The stack is an efficient, optimized implementation developed from first principles by Embedded Labs. It fully encapsulates the UA Address Space and UA Services, and no knowledge of OPC-UA is required to integrate it into your product. There are no software limits on the number of sessions, subscriptions, or monitored items. The stack is available to license in January 2011.
Shane Robinson, Commercial Director Embedded Labs said, OPC-UA is the future for standardized, multi-platform device connectivity. Embedded OPC-UA solutions from Embedded Labs are the fastest, easiest, and lowest-cost way to OPC-UA-enable both existing and new product lines.
OPC-UA is the new OPC specification from the OPC Foundation. OPC-UA defines a rich information model, enabling more effective communication between devices and software applications. Unlike its predecessors, OPC-UA supports multiple platform implementations, enabling scalability from smart sensors to manufacturing execution systems.
