Weitere Informationen


The netX 4100 SoC from Hilscher is a very capable 4-port network processor for real-time and multi-protocol capable master/slave communication. In contrast to the netX 4000, the netX 4100 is suitable for companion chip use cases with the application running on the host controller. The host easily connected to the netX via the host interface (DPM, SPM or PCIe).

The Cortex-R7, with its 1000 DMIPS real-time profile and dedicated low latency SRAM, is used on the one hand for the real-time operating system (RTOS) and on the other hand for embedded protocol stacks from Hilscher. The xC subsystem, with its inherent flexibility, interfaces traditional Fieldbus technologies and all major Real-Time Ethernet systems, and supports in use with other on-chip resources the provision of gateway and port-switch functions.

Furthermore, the netX 4100 features an implemented security unit, providing a set of cryptographic algorithms for secure boot and secure communication.
