  • Patent number: 10394748
    Abstract: An integrated circuit includes a reception port an address port, and a memory with a number of memory sections for storing activation information. The number of memory sections is equal to the number, encodable by the address port, of activatable integrated circuits that are operable over a common bus. A control unit is configured to compare the address encoded by the address port with an address received at the reception port. The control unit writes a defined bit pattern to the memory section associated with the address in the event of a positive comparison, and withholds transmission of a negative acknowledgement signal in the event of a negative comparison. The integrated circuit is configured to be activated by the defined bit pattern in the memory section that corresponds to the address defined at the address port, for communicating with a microprocessor connected to the integrated circuit via the common bus.

  • Publication number: 20100211633
    Abstract: In order to grant authorization to use a function in an industrial automation system comprising a plurality of networked control units, functions of the automation system are provided by services of the control units. Service interfaces are separated inside a client/service architecture, on the service side, into interfaces which provide either security-critical functions or functions which are not critical to security. The separated service-side interfaces are hidden from client applications by a client-side interface in which the service-side interfaces are recorded. Functions provided by services can be called solely via the client-side interface.
