netX Chip carrier - EtherCAT Slave

netX Chip-Carrier for integrated communication

The network technology in automation devices from medium to high volumes is typically integrated with a chip solution, such as the flexible multiprotocol chip netX. The complete development of the communication interface is thereby carried out by the customer from scratch. Low costs per unit are opposed to development risk, increased development time and necessary in-house knowledge.

The rapid and secure alternative to in-house development is netRAPID.

netX Chip-Carrier is a solution that offers adequate costs per unit as well as reduced risk and fast time-to-market. netRAPID is a complete netX-based communication interface and contains all necessary operating components. The 32 x 32 mm compact netX carrier will be soldered to the baseboard - by hand or SMD production process. You only need to add network interface, LEDs and address switches. A simple 2-layer baseboard is sufficient.

Full functionality of netRAPID is enabled via licensed firmware, which needs to be acquired once and loaded during manufacturing process.

Highlights:
  • Rapid alternative to an own development
  • Complete Slave interface with smallest footprint
  • Prototyping or SMD series production
  • One hardware for all Real-Time Ethernet systems
  • Host connection via Dual-Port Memory or SPI
  • Combines advantages of an ASIC with the benefits of a Module
