Embedded Labs Announce OPC-UA Embedded Server SDK
Waterford, Ireland. July 09th 2012. Embedded Labs have today announced that they are combining their existing OPC-UA Device Server Software Development Kits for Microcontrollers and Microprocessors into a single unified product. This new product, entitled Embedded Labs’ OPC-UA Embedded Server SDK, will result in significant cost reductions for customers integrating OPC-UA servers into their embedded products.
Shane Robinson Commercial Director, Embedded Labs said, “We wanted to simplify our product offering and at the same time restructure our pricing to make our products more accessible to the smaller OEM. We believe that our combination of aggressive pricing and a single unified SDK that is scalable from Sensors to Industrial PCs will accelerate the adoption of OPC-UA by Original Equipment Manufacturers”.
The OPC-UA Embedded Server SDK is fully configurable and scalable from microcontrollers with 64kB RAM right up to high end embedded systems based on ARM9, ARM Cortex-Ax and x86 based processors such as the Intel Atom. The product can be optimized for minimum RAM and FLASH utilization or for large data sets and multiple concurrent client connections.
OPC-UA (Unified Architecture) is the new OPC specification from the OPC Foundation (http://www.opcfoundation.org). 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 MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems).
