The FMC-INDUSTRIAL board is designed to enable prototyping and evaluation of industrial applications that require standard serial communication interfaces, but whose versions have been improved in terms of QoS and immunity to harsh conditions.

The board includes isolated versions of RS485 and RS232 which are well established in many industries. Additionally, there is a CAN controller that also offers an isolated physical interface that is widely used in automotive applications.

With the exception of the hardened serial ports, industrial applications very often use standard computer interfaces, so this card offers USB 3.0. It can be further expanded with the Digilent PMOD modules.
