EtherCAT Protocol Stack / Library
port’s powerful and mature EtherCAT Protocol Stack provides fast, reliable and efficient communication.
Additionally the Protocol Stack offers all required services for a compliant communication according to the EtherCAT communication profile ETG.1000.
It facilitates easy and fast development of your EtherCAT Slave devices.
Access to the hardware is carried out via a hardware abstraction layer. These drivers are available for selected hardware, like ET1100 or ET1200 including port’s FPGA solution, which is available for Altera Nios ® II and Xilinx MicroBlaze™. Drivers for other CPU’s / MCU’s on request, please ask for our recent list of supported CPU’s / MCU’s. The FPGA solution can also be used for other Industrial Ethernet Protocols.
Due to the scalability of the EtherCAT Protocol Stack it fits perfectly to the resources of your application.
