1.15 Demonstrating DDR-less EtherCAT Slave on AMIC110
2018年 9月 8日
EtherCAT (Ethernet for Control Automation Technology) continuously grows to establish itself as a dominant, industrial, Ethernet network. This video demonstrates how to run the DDR-less EtherCAT reference design (TIDEP-0105), which serves as a reference for a completely new and low-cost, DDR-less, EtherCAT slave implementation on the AMIC110, a multiprotocol industrial communications system on a chip. This reference design showcases the ability to run a full EtherCAT slave stack entirely on the internal memory of the SoC. Significant system bill of materials (BOM) and board savings are achieved with this reference design by eliminating an external ASIC and DDR. Additionally, applications such as connected industrial drives and communications modules can significantly benefit from the faster speeds that are achieved by eliminating external memory transfers for EtherCAT.
