Alizem releases its new Internet-of-Things (IoT) software interface

 PRESS RELEASE

For immediate release

Alizem releases its new Internet-of-Things (IoT) software interface

Lévis(Canada), October 5th 2015. Alizem is pleased to announce the release of its new software interface for Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications connecting Alizem embedded control software products to Initial State’s platform, a recognized leader and innovator in IoT technology. This interface is meant to help electrical equipment manufacturers to design better products faster by enabling them to easily and quickly pipe out critical data from the operation and health state of their product without having to invest in complex and expensive data monitoring equipment. Those benefits are applicable during and after product development phase:

  • Early bug detection: visualize all your measurements and system states and quickly isolate bugs.
  • Distributed teams: easily share data between development teams working at different locations.
  • Performance monitoring: remotely monitor critical performance data such as power consumption, load motion profiles, current shape and temperature.
  • New value-added services: bundle your electrical equipment products with SaaS based monitoring services and provide peace-of-mind to your customers by having them access to all their equipment operation data.

“Everybody in the industry is looking forward to technical and business innovations coming from IoT. This new release is a real example of how the internet infrastructure can be leveraged not only to reduce time of development and product costs, but also to add completely new features that will enable to generate new revenues for electric equipment manufacturers. We are glad to release this new product onto Initial State’s IoT technology: from day one, we have been amazed by the quality of their platform and by the deep and precise vision of their team regarding the development of IoT.” said Dr. Marc Perron, president at Alizem.

“This is a perfect example of how many unique and powerful opportunities the IoT is creating. So many people believe the IoT is only about sensors. The Alizem IoT software interface lets you tap into the treasure trove of intelligence trapped inside our electronic devices. Being able to easily monitor and capture the data created by hardware, software, and the multitude of systems within a device opens up a world of possibilities from R&D to manufacturing to in-field service. This is an unbelievably powerful tool for anyone building an electromechanical device.” said Jamie Bailey, CEO at Initial State.

Alizem IoT interface is available now either as a standalone product or integrated into Alizem Embedded Software for Servo-Drives Applications on Altera MAX10 FPGA devices. Check http://www.alizem.com/iot for more details.

Alizem licenses its Embedded Motor Control Software IP in industrial market

 

 

PRESS RELEASE

                                                                                                                       For immediate release

  

Alizem licenses its Embedded Motor Control Software IP in industrial market

  

Lévis (CANADA), October 28th 2013. Alizemis pleased to announce the signature of a license agreement of its recently released COTS Motor Control Software IP for Servo-Drives applications on Altera FPGAs with a leading OEM company having revenues over 1.5B$ in industrial market. One clause of this agreement is to keep the name of this customer confidential.

 

“Alizem Embedded Motor Control Software IP is a great fit for innovative companies that are looking to design better power electronics-based products faster and cheaper.” said Dr. Marc Perron, President at Alizem. “Motor control is a very complex application and the process of designing a new industrial product is a very long one, having many internal performances gates to reach before going into production. By licensing Alizem Motor Control Software IP, our customers have on-tap access to world-class experts in the field of power electronics during their whole product development process without having to have full-time staff assigned to this specific task. They also tremendously reduce the financial risk of their project by shifting this software development cost up to production stage which is a great option in uncertain economic times where product development projects are often delayed or cancelled”.

Webinar: Alizem's Dr. Marc Perron on the topic of FPGA-based motion controllers on May 30th 2013

 

This webinar was scheduled on May 30th 2013. Have you missed it ? No problem: you can still listen to it by clicking here.

The Brains behind the Motion Controller 

Date: May 30, 2013 
Time: 2:00 PM EDT 
Duration: 45 minutes with Q&A 

About the Webinar 

Motion control applications are full of motors, drives, gears, actuators, and so on. But without the electrical components driving the mechanics, you won’t get very far. This webinar will look at the electronics that serve as the brains behind the motion control applications, from the division of analog (power) and digital, to the processing that can differentiate a “smart” motion controller. 

Panelists: 

Dave Moore 
Senior Strategic Marketing Manager 
Altera’s Industrial Business Unit
