Description

Slave solution for field devices with a low data throughput

Simple field devices such as barcode readers, identification systems, valve manifolds or I/O blocks require a connection to fieldbus or Real-Time Ethernet systems. Since these devices only have a low 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 plug-in module. It is based on the network controller netX and contains all components of a fieldbus or Real-Time Ethernet interface with an integrated 2-port switch and hub. With the netX technology the whole spectrum of relevant fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet systems is covered. By exchanging the firmware, one single netIC can be used for multiple communication systems. The user data is transferred with simple read-write commands to the application via the above mentioned serial interfaces. The well-known Modbus RTU protocol is used as a serial protocol.

Conventional shifting registers can be controlled via a synchronous serial interface requiring no additional processor for a simple I/O-device.

Due to the Hilscher network controller netX, a 10-years delivery guarantee is granted.

netIC is the ideal slave solution for simple field devices with low data throughput. As a DIL-32 based communication IC, it reduces the integration into the customer hardware to a minimum. Data can either be directly transferred from the host to netIC via shift registers or via the well-known Modbus RTU protocol.
