In addition to LINUX, a variety of platforms from STMicroelectronics, RENESAS, TI, Infineon, Spansion, Analog Devices, Cypress, Microchip, Freescale, NXP, Marvell and many more are supported. With GOAL, port has released a middleware for multi-protocol solutions, which facilitates the use of real-time communication technologies.
With this strategy since 2011, the turnover of port has more than tripled ...
Dietmar R. Franke CEO of port: "In addition to the business segment of “Stacks and Tools for CANopen, PROFINET, EtherNet / IP, EtherCAT, POWERLINK and CC-LINK / TSN", the business segment "customer-specific developments and OEM solutions " has been very well established. Since 2019, we also have been offering our customers embedded hardware solutions in order to provide low-cost customers with a cost-effective way to "IoT and Industry 4.0 solutions". With this new business, we will at least double sales of port in the next 3 to 5 years. "
Since port's sales are growing faster, especially outside of Germany and since the new business segment "embedded solutions" will significantly boost international growth, the shareholders have decided to internationalize the company name as well.
From now on, port will be known as "port industrial automation GmbH" based in Halle / Saale
