PLC applications requiring fast timing and fast cycle time can now be realized using this reference design which implements an eight-port IO-Link® master. It can be used to build a remote IO gateway to connect to OPC UA, Profinet, EtherCAT, or Ethernet IP. A PRU-based frame handler enables a very flexible way of timing and time synchronization. This design helps build a universal and scalable IO-Link master.
