ROHM and Litmus Automation Offer Optimized Smart Factory Solution

By Ken Briodagh January 11, 2018

ROHM and Litmus Automation have announced a collaboration on an IoT solution for smart factories that will combine ROHM sensor and sub-GHz technologies with Litmus Automation’s LoopEdge gateway and LoopCloud platform.

Multiple ROHM sensors nodes are installed in industrial and factory equipment to monitor key parameters for improving performance and prevent unexpected failures. Sensor data is processed using ARM M0 and M3 core MCUs before being sent via Wi-SUN for collection and analysis at the Edge with Litmus Automation’s LoopEdge platform. The data can then be transmitted to LoopCloud to enable real-time monitoring and machine learning.

“ROHM is a leading supplier of sensors, wireless communication ICs, modules, and other semiconductor-based products. This partnership will allow us to provide an optimized end-to-end IoT solution for the industrial space utilizing Litmus Automation’s software,” said Satya Dixit, Senior Director, Solutions Marketing, ROHM. “Our collaboration is a natural fit that opens up new market opportunities for achieving a flexible, fully connected system, with Digital Twins in the Cloud that will replicate the physical systems while reducing energy consumption and downtime due to unexpected failures, providing our customers with a competitive advantage.” 

Sensor data is streamed to LoopCloud for real-time analysis, control, and visualization. A PLC is also used for control of system power.

“Through this partnership, ROHM will be able to bring the full value of LoopEdge and LoopCloud for industrial applications,” said Vatsal Shah, CEO and co-founder, Litmus Automation. “ROHM is a market leader with a proven track record, which will help us deliver immediate value to this key sector.”
