PMC EtherCAT® Slave Interface
Convert your PMC System into an EtherCAT Slave Device:
• Add EtherCAT Slave (ECS) functionality to your PMC equipped base board
• The EtherCAT Slave Controller address space is directly mapped to the PCI
Express® address space.
Simple Configuration and Rapid Application Development:
• Easy Configuration by esd's EtherCAT Master or other masters
• Sample EtherCAT Slave Information File (ESI file in XML format) is provided
• esd's EtherCAT Slave API library and sample code for rapid application
development are included.
Bus Master Support:
• The FPGA contains Bus Master DMA Support to offload the CPU from copying
the output process image data into the host memory. This is utilized by the
esd EtherCAT Slave Stack.
