Innovasic Semiconductor offers downloadable EtherNet/IP connectivity solution
July 15, 2010 // Julien Happich
Innovasic Semiconductor is making available its new RapID Platform connectivity solution for EtherNet/IP adapters. The entire platform can be downloaded directly from the Innovasic website for a risk-free, no cost evaluation. This is not a demo version, it is fully functional and pre-tested for EtherNet/IP conformance including electronic schematics, bill of materials, and layout files, as well as all necessary software, stacks, and development environment.
Evaluation of the RapID Platform download can be performed on hardware via the Internet or at the customer's site. A one-time license fee applies only if the platform is used in production. The solution is centered on Innovasic's fido communication controller which handles all EtherNet/IP traffic.
The RapID Platform can be used as a “network processor” alongside any host microcontroller. It can also be used as a standalone solution with the customer's application running directly on the RapID Platform. All software is royalty-free with no hidden fees. The schematic has been carefully designed to provide robust, long-life, industrial-class performance at the lowest possible bill of material (BOM) cost.
The Ethernet physical interface includes protection circuitry, bicolor LEDs, and magnetics integrated in the connector. The RapID Platform achieves an EtherNet/IP packet interval (RPI) of 1 ms and supports the full CIP Specification including Identity, Message Route, Assembly, Connection Manager, Ethernet Link, and TCP/IP Objects.
