FPGA-based Hardware Integration Kit for Field Devices

Type:  Network Gateway
Description:  The Fieldbus Kit (FBK) communication module is a complete interface for connecting field devices to the PROFINET IO, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP real-time Ethernet protocols. The Simple Device Application Interface (SDAI) is used to connect the device application to the protocol software. Flexible communication modules are an alternative when small quantities of interface connections are needed or the necessary hardware development skills are lacking. They can be used to quickly and easily extend the functionality of existing field devices.
Connectivity:  Modbus TCP
Features:  2-port switch, corresponding MAC and 2 NIOS II processors; Small dimensions for convenient integration; Connection to field device possible via memory interface and serial interface
Specifications:  Included in package: Communication module; Real-time Ethernet stacks with SDAI interface (object format); SDAI description; Sample programs in source code; Device description files; Projects for PLC communication
