T2M Ethernet EtherCAT Slave IP

EtherCAT Slave IP

Description and Features

EtherCAT Slave core is compliant with EtherCAT Standard Specification ETG.1000 S(R) V1.0.4. Through its EtherCAT compatibility, it provides a simple interface to a wide range of low-cost devices. EtherCAT Slave IP is proven in FPGA environment. The host interface of the EtherCAT can be simple interface or can be AMBA APB, AMBA AHB, AMBA AXI, VCI, OCP, Avalon, PLB, Tilelink, Wishbone or Custom protocol.
