28 Nov 2013

Dusseldorf, November 28, 2013 — Renesas Electronics Europe, a premier provider of advanced semiconductor solutions, has teamed up with its alliance partner Technologie Management Gruppe (TMG) to offer comprehensive software support for its multi-protocol industrial Ethernet solutions. TMG is implementing PROFINET and EtherNet/IP stacks from Molex on the Renesas Industrial Network (R-IN) devices, providing customers with easy access to these technologies and a fast market entry.


  With its revolutionary hardware accelerator design, Renesas' R-IN32M3 multi-protocol industrial Ethernet solutions are 5 times more efficient in Ethernet packet processing, while reducing overall power consumption by 50%. EtherCAT and CC-Link IE real-time protocols are implemented in hardware, offering the most robust implementation while limiting the impact on the overall power dissipation. Software based protocols like EtherNet/IP, PROFINET RT, and Modbus TCP run on the ARM® Cortex M3 processor with 1.3MB embedded RAM attached. Due to the high degree of integration, the R-IN devices include Ethernet PHYs, various fieldbus interfaces and multiple peripheral modules.


  Molex PROFINET and EtherNet/IP SDKs allow sensor, actuator and PLC manufacturers to efficiently integrate PROFINET and EtherNet/IP into their products. Molex software stack solutions provide reliable and robust performance across complex industrial networks in a wide range of advanced manufacturing and automation applications. As a technology partner of Molex, TMG has vast experience integrating Molex technologies onto a variety of devices. The availability of these internationally well respected stacks on the R-IN series of devices offers comprehensive and high quality implementations of industrial Ethernet technologies.
