HMS Networks AB: HMS Industrial Networks AB Collaborates with Xilinx to Deliver Next Generation Industrial Networking Solutions

Latest industrial networking IP based on leading Anybus technology for Xilinx
FPGA and SoC devices

HAMSTAD, April 27, 2015
- HMS Industrial Networks AB (HMSN.ST) announced today that it is
collaborating with Xilinx (NASDAQ: XLNX) to deliver next generation
industrial networking solutions. HMS's latest industrial network IP is based
on the leading Anybus technology for Xilinx® FPGA and SoC devices. HMS is
the worldwide leader in Industrial network technology and has connected more
than three million devices to industrial networks in demanding applications
with its Anybus technology. Xilinx® Artix®-7 FPGAs and Zynq®-7000 All
Programmable SoCs integrate state-of-the-art FPGA technology with dual-core
ARM® Cortex(TM)-A9 MPCore(TM) processors, giving developers a powerful and
flexible basis with high performance embedded processing power and hardware

HMS, a Xilinx Alliance Program Member, is adapting the Anybus technology to
the FPGA and Zynq platforms, with the aim of enabling Xilinx customers to
implement all popular Industrial Ethernet protocols, such as Profinet,
Ethernet/IP, Powerlink and EtherCAT. The objective is to form the first
one-stop-shop solution for industrial communication IP cores on Xilinx and
leverage Anybus's platform concept for a new level of integration and

"We are very excited about having Anybus on Xilinx products. The industrial
communication market is very fragmented when it comes to protocols, and many
next generation product platforms require the support of multiple networks.
We are looking forward to our Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC customers
getting a proven, flexible and reliable communication solution that
appreciably improves time to market for their new products," says Christoph
Fritsch, director of the industrial, scientific and medical business segment
at Xilinx.

"Co-operation with Xilinx allows HMS to further integrate into new technical
platforms. FPGAs remain extremely popular in industrial products, so the
proposed combination of Xilinx's Zynq All Programmable SoCs and HMS's Anybus
technology will create an unbeatable combination in providing performance,
flexibility and short time-to-market for demanding industrial applications,"
says Staffan Dahlström, CEO of HMS. "We see the Xilinx co-operation as a
great complement to our existing Anybus offer of chips, bricks and modules
for industrial communication. This new solution will increase the reach of
Anybus into more applications and will provide new market opportunities for

HMS expect the Anybus technology to be available for Zynq All Programmable SoC
customers during the second half of 2015.
