Module Evaluation Kits

Innovasic Semiconductor is shipping its Module Evaluation Kits for the fido 1100 communication controller with a complete EtherNet/IP solution.

The kit contains a dual real-time Ethernet (DRTE) module, baseboard, software, reference design and all the cables required to evaluate the EtherNet/IP solution right out of the box. After the setup, the module is ready to communicate on the network and with a host processor. The DRTE module contains a dual RJ45 connector with magnetics, 2 Ethernet PHYs, two-port Ethernet Switch, fido 1100 communication controller, RAM and ROM.

For evaluation, the module plugs into the baseboard and communicates with a PC via USB. The PC hosts all the development software and tools to evaluate the DRTE module on an EtherNet/IP network.

As a node on an EtherNet/IP network, the DRTE module's two-port switch supports popular network topologies such as star and ring. An EtherNet/IP stack from Pyramid Solutions and a TCP/IP Protocol Suite from NexGen Software along with the fido1100 RTOS Kernel in a Chip enable robust and high availability communication. All stacks, software and RTOS Kernel in a Chip are royalty-free.

The module is industrial grade and can be mounted directly on another processor board or can be incorporated into a processor board using the reference design.
