Industrial Ethernet Platform Solutions

The Industrial Ethernet platform solutions are a complete, pre-tested set of solutions that manage the Industrial Protocol and Network Traffic for a host processor. The network interface module or embedded reference design contains everything needed to participate in star, line, or ring network topologies, including the communications controller, protocol stacks, Flash, RAM, Ethernet switch, and PHYs. A host processor connects to the network interface via a UART or 16-bit parallel interface. At the software layer, the host connects to a unified interface so other protocols can be used without changing the host software. The network interface has passed EtherNet/IP® CT12 certification for beacon-based DLR devices and has been net load tested by Analog Devices. This means that your field device will operate problem-free on any EtherNet/IP network and will never disconnect from the network.

fido5x00 REM Switches

Your Processor, Your Stacks, One Switch—Amazing Performance

The fido5000 REM family includes two Industrial Ethernet platform solution switches that support all major Industrial Ethernet protocols and connect to any processor to build any field device or controller application. The family’s 2-port, embedded Ethernet switches can interface to any processor, including any ARM® CPU and ADI’s fido1100 communication controller. ADI’s PriorityChannel™ technology has been integrated into the switches’ hardware architecture and designed into the REM switch software drivers. The protocols supported for both the fido5100 and fido5200 are PROFINET Class C (IRT) and Class B (RT), EtherNet/IP with and without DLR, Modbus® TCP, EtherCAT®, SERCOS®, and POWERLINK®; the fido5200 adds EtherCAT support. The REM switches come with a software driver for each protocol. The software drivers provide an API for integration with any field device or controller protocol stack. ADI is certifying REM and its software drivers at each protocol’s sponsoring industry organization using ADI’s RapID platform.

Easy Hardware and Software Integration with Industrial Ethernet Platform Solutions

The network interface can be integrated into a design as either a module or an embedded reference design. As a module, the network interface plugs into a board using standard 2.54 mm pitch through-hole pins. When designing-in the module, hardware integration is as easy as connecting power/ground/ reset and interfacing the host to the UART or 16-bit parallel interface. As an embedded reference design, the network interface hardware design can be integrated directly using the schematics provided. Also provided are the bill of materials and example layouts to minimize the hardware design effort.

Software for the Industrial Ethernet platform solutions is provided as firmware that is downloaded to the flash. Whether using the network interface as a module or an embedded reference design, no software development is required and there are no license fees or royalties. Software integration with a host is also easy. Messages passed between the host and network interface follow a unified interface definition. A simple to use, Analog Devices supplied, PC-based tool configures the network interface, so the host only passes parameters between it and the network interface.
