The enabler to development
The Evaluation Kit for the Industrial Ethernet Module provides customers with the opportunity for the development of devices with Industrial Ethernet. Beside the Industrial Ethernet Module, the kit includes a carrier board, which holds the Industrial Ethernet Module mechanically and provides the electrical signals on standard headers. Different CPU modules can be mechanically and electrically connected to the carrier board via individual adapter boards.
The CPU module phyCORE-XC161 from PHYTEC is directly supported. Other CPU modules on request.
On the CPU module, customers develop their applications which then access the Industrial Ethernet Module via the host interface and the EMI.
Description of functions
The universal carrier board holds the Industrial Ethernet Module and, via the adapter board, the CPU module. All signals of the Industrial Ethernet Module are additionally fed out on the carrier board on headers in order to be able to carry out measurements on the host interface.
For the development of simple applications, the CPU module has 8 discrete inputs (buttons) and 8 discrete outputs (LEDs) for direct activation on the carrier board. These signals can also be picked up on headers.
The voltages for the supply of the Industrial Ethernet Module (3.3 V) and of the CPU module (3.3 V and 5 V) are generated on the carrier board from 9 – 32 V DC input voltage.
The CPU module and the carrier board are connected physically and electrically with the adapter board. It makes the necessary adaptations for the CPU module (e.g. power supply, level adjustment or debugging interface). Customers can also make an individual adapter board for their systems.
The technical details and functions of the Evaluation Kit may change.
