Process This: A Monthly Webinar Series


Process This: Hello (Industrial) World — 3 Industrial Ethernet Protocols in 30 Minutes


February 3, 2022

In this episode of Process This, we are joined by PHYTEC, an industry-leading provider and integrator of System on Modules (SOMs) that enable companies to bring complex products quickly and easily to market.

PHYTEC built a new Industrial Communication “Pinger” Demo that uses the Texas Instruments AM6442 processor on three phyCORE-AM64x development kits (pictured above) to communicate over EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP and PROFINET. Their demo is a great starting point for anyone building factory automation products that use popular fieldbus protocols.

In this presentation you will see a live demonstration, including out-of-box examples for connecting, communicating and testing board-to-board communication.

Topics include:
  • PHYTEC and phyCORE-AM64x SoM overview
  • Unboxing and booting the hardware
  • Pinger demo: Board-to-board communication using EtherCAT, EtherNET/IP, and Profinet and comparing ping times, latency, and reliability
  • Question & answer session
