The ECS-PCIe/1100 integrates any PC into an EtherCAT network and makes it an EtherCAT slave node.

  • PCI Express® (PCIe) port designed according to PCIe specification R1.0a
  • ESC address space is directly mapped to the PCIe address space to minimize overhead / latency
  • Multiple boards per PC supported

Utilizes the ET1100 EtherCAT slave controller (ESC) ASIC:

  • Supports virtually all current EtherCAT features (depends on slave stack / platform etc.)
  • 8 sync managers (SM) / 8 fieldbus memory management units (FMMU)
  • 8 kbyte process data memory
  • Distributed clocks (DC) support (full 64 bit)
  • Supports polling and interrupts


  • EtherCAT ports: 2x RJ45, 100BASE-TX according to IEEE 802.3, electrically isolated
  • LEDs: Error, Run, Link/Activity
  • PCIe link width: 1x

esd EtherCAT Slave Stack included (object versions for Windows/Linux):

  • Identical API on all platforms for easy and fast slave application development
  • Supports several mailbox protocols, DC, multiple slave controllers and much more, see here
  • Optionally available as cross platform source code for (embedded) targets, which makes the ECS-PCIe/1100 the ideal platform to start slave application development
  • Application samples and ESI file for ECS-PCIe/1100 included
