LAN9253 EL9820 ADD ON BOARD
Microchip’s next-generation EtherCAT® devices provide enhanced cycle times, higher integration and system-level cost savings for industrial designs. The LAN9253 Add-on Board enables users of Beckhoff’s EL9820 to evaluate the features of Microchip’s LAN9253 2-/3-port EtherCAT controller.
The LAN9253 Add-on Board integrates with Beckhoff’s EL9820 evaluation platform to provide higher integration and system-level cost savings. This small-form-factor solution can be integrated with any EtherCAT or microcontroller platform.
The LAN9253 EtherCAT device controller has dual PHYs and a host bus interface to reduce a typical three-device footprint to a single footprint on a board. It can support an external ESI EEPROM for compatibility, although this can be eliminated in production platforms that use EEPROM emulation. Features such as EtherCAT ERROR indication are generated by the device. The LAN9253 is available in commercial, industrial and extended industrial temperature ranges and comes in a 64-pin QFN package.
