IO-Link is a serial communication protocol that connects sensors and actuators to remote I/O or programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in factory automation. This solution is an easy-to-use gateway development kit for the IO-Link protocol. It connects up to eight IO-Link sensors or actuators and supports industrial Ethernet communication controlled by an Arm® Cortex®-A7 microprocessor.
