From multiprotocol Industrial Ethernet to Gigabit TSN

In smart factories, servo drives are used in conveyor belts, machines, tools and robots. These applications may require support from multiple real-time Ethernet protocols such as EtherCAT, Profinet Real Time/Isochronous Real Time, EtherNet/IP and, soon, gigabit Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN). Our Sitara™ microcontroller and microprocessors have multiprotocol capability built in, with additional resources for multiaxis motor control. 

Our Ethernet physical layers (PHYs) support a range of standard protocols, data rates and high electromagnetic compatibility immunity for implementation in harsh industrial environments. For closed systems such as robotics and machinery, 10-, 100- and 1-Gb single-pair Ethernet PHYs are available.
