Today, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and HART use Electronic Device Descriptions to fully describe and model a field device. EDDs, and now FDI Packages, enable a Host System to configure, commission and maintain these devices.
During design and development of devices, EDDs and FDI Packages provide a cost-effective review of the device Application Layer for a given implementation.
The course uses a lecture/lab structure to provide a thorough understanding of the EDD and FDI Package. By the end of the course, all attendees develop an EDD and FDI Package using the FDI Package Integrated Development Environment (IDE). During lab time, the instructor provides one-on-one assistance to the attendee as they develop their EDD and FDI Package. All attendees receive the tools needed for real-world EDD and FDI Package development, testing and registration with the FieldComm Group.
