What came first… technologies resulting in shorter development cycles, or the need to shorten development cycles resulting in those technologies?
Of course, the question doesn’t matter as much as the ongoing result: a technological revolution “that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before,” to put it in the words of Klaus Schwab. “The speed of current breakthroughs has no historical precedent. When compared with previous industrial revolutions, the Fourth is evolving at an exponential rather than a linear pace. Moreover, it is disrupting almost every industry in every country,”
As to why companies want to shorten their design cycles and launch their products as fast as possible, several arguments are made that all boil down to one goal: show market leadership.
To support companies around the world in cutting down their development time, Trinamic products embed motion control in silicon. This means you no longer have to write endless lines of code to move your application the way you want it to. Instead, you only have to set a few parameters, for example using the single wire UART interface or step/direction interface, to enjoy the most advanced motion control.
