I don't suppose anybody could tell me what model of processors are used in common industrial PLC/DCS controllers? I assume the majority are Intel based possibly Xeon for higher end controllers. I heard some old Siemens S7 CPU's use Mitsubishi chips.
I'm more concerned about DCS controllers since they handle a lot more network data. I just want to do a small study on industrial controller performance.
