Slave solution for simple field devices
Simple field devices such as barcode readers, identification system, valve islands or I/O blocks
will require a connection to Fieldbus or Real-Time Ethernet systems. Since these devices do
not have a high data throughput, the netIC uses a serial connection such as UART and SPI as host interface.
The netIC is a complete ‘Single Chip Module’ in the compact dimensions of a Dual-In-Line (DIL) 32 pin plugin
module. It is based on the network controller netX and contains all components of a Fieldbus or Real-Time
Ethernet interface with integrated 2-port switch and hub. With the netX technology the whole spectrum of relevant
Fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet systems is covered by loadable Firmware with one netIC. The user data
is transferred with simple read-write commands to the application via the above mentioned serial interfaces. As
serial protocol the well known Modbus RTU protocol is used.
Alternatively conventional shifting registers can be controlled via a synchronous serial interface
so no additional processor for a simple I/O-Device is required.
