EtherCAT LSI (EC-1)

EC-1 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.

Features

 

Solution certified by EtherCAT Test Center (ETC) conformance testing

  • Software environment and evaluation board are certified by official conformance test based on BECKHOFF's EtherCAT slave stack code.
  • Evaluation board is a rugged remote IO board design with 24V inputs. This product example helps customer develop application and final product faster.

 

Easy transition from low-speed serial communication to EtherCAT

  • Customer can easily change communication protocol to legacy serial interfaces, allowing user to focus on their end application.
  • Sample software is provided that targets various devices with different profiles:

CiA402 drive profile for motor driving devices.

ETG.5003 profile for semiconductor manufacturing equipment.

 

Optimized for EtherCAT applications. Best suited for designing slave devices with High-Speed connectivity.

  • Integrated ARM Cortex-R4F Core @ 150MHz with double and single precision floating point unit. The Tightly Coupled Memory (TCM), EtherCAT slave controller is ideal for deterministic high-speed connectivity.
  • Compatibility has been verified with master devices from more than ten manufacturers. This is a proven solution and significantly reduces the development time for EtherCAT slave applications.

Title Description
IBIS/BSDL

IBIS standard simulation data is required for high-speed board design and can be used to run simulations to examine and troubleshoot issues such as waveform reflection, ringing, and so on, before producing the actual board.

BSDL is a data input format supported by most IEEE 1149.1 (JTAG)-compliant tools. The automatic test pattern generation (ATPG) and automatic test equipment functions of these tools facilitate testing.
