Future Proof EtherCAT communication device

EC-1 from Renesas is a dedicated device with a built-in EtherCAT Slave Controller. This is an optimal solution to design high performance EtherCAT protocol in Industrial automation and manufacturing.

High Performance ARM Cortex-R4 - a highly deterministic processor for fast interrupt handling in real-time applications. It delivers processing power to deal with the increasing requirements of the application software.

Integrated Tightly-Coupled Memory (TCM) with Error Correcting Code (ECC) for even more performant and deterministic system.

  • RAM 512KB + 32KB
