Overview

Industrial Ethernet for industrial automation exists in more than 30 industrial standards. Some of the well-established real-time Ethernet protocols like EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, Sercos III and PowerLink require dedicated MAC hardware support in terms of FPGA or ASICs. The programmable real-time unit inside the Industrial Communication Subsystem (PRU-ICSS), which exists as a hardware block inside the Sitara processors family, replaces FPGA or ASICs by a single chip design. Firmware in the PRU-ICSS allows detecting the type of Industrial Ethernet protocol and loading the appropriate industrial application during run-time into the Sitara processor. This reference design describes the multi-protocol Industrial Ethernet protocol detection firmware for PRU-ICSS. This design contains TMDSICE3359, but can also support TMDXICE110.

Features
  • High speed/frequency with high precision for accurate PTO control and synchronization
  • Implementation without external ASIC or FPGA
  • Implementation on PRU-ICSS with Sitara processor
  • Contains PRU-ICSS firmware in source code and can get adoptable by customer
  • Easy evaluation with the TMDXICE3359 or TMDXICE110 industrial communication EVMs
