Renesas Industrial Network Engine: R-IN32M3 Evaluation Board

The R-IN32M3 series of industrial Ethernet controllers is designed to support a broad range of industrial Ethernet protocols. Optimized integration options, emphasis on low power design and a high level of integration make it a very powerful, compact, power optimized device with a low overall bill of material cost. Smart integration of dedicated hardware accelerators allow to offer significant more processing power for applications than similar CPU designs without such accelerators.

Key features:

  • ARM® Cortex™-M3 based CPU subsystem clocked at 100MHz clock
  • Hardware offload engines take significant load from the main CPU 
    • Hardware Real-time OS Accelerator (HW-RTOS)
    • Hardware Ethernet Accelerators (IP/TCP/UDP Check Sum, Header ENDEC, Buffer manager)
  • 1.3 MByte of on-chip RAM
  • 2-port Real-Time Gigabit Switch, supports cut-through and store&forward operating modes as well as IEEE1588 PTP and Device-Level-Ring (DLR) protocols
  • EtherCAT Slave Controller (ESC) in hardware
  • Other leading fieldbuses on-chip
  • Lots of peripherals and GPIOs
  • Support for a wide range of Industrial Ethernet protocols
