The FMC Carrier Card supports the MicroZed™ Evaluation Kit and System-on-Module (SOM), providing easy access to the full 108 user I/O available...
Avnet’s MicroZed™ Industry 4.0 Ethernet Kit (I4EK) demonstrates multi-protocol Industrial Ethernet in the Xilinx Zynq-7000™ SoC. Designers using the I4EK can quickly evaluate HMS Anybus® IP which provides the most widely used protocols with a unified API. The result is seamless hardware and software integration across networks. Protocol support includes:
EtherCAT® -- Powerlink -- PROFINET® RT/IRT -- EtherNet/IP™ -- Modbus-TCP
No startup fees for evaluation and development. Deployed products are licensed with a tiny 1-wire security chip.
To help you minimize risk and get to market faster, the MicroZed System-on-Module (SOM) is small, rugged, and built for deployment. Getting started is easy.
1) Evaluate the Zynq SoC and Anybus IP real-time performance using the I4EK’s MicroZed SOM
2) Prototype your system using best-in-class IP, software APIs, and drivers
3) Deploy your end product with the MicroZed SOM, Anybus IP, your differentiating features and custom carrier board
The I4EK is the right solution for designers creating leading edge applications for factory automation such as networked sensors, actuators, and motor control with the intelligence to give you best possible control over your production process.
The I4EK out-of-box demo from HMS Industrial Networks creates a Zynq EtherCAT Slave communicating with a PC soft master using Beckhoff TwinCAT software. Reference designs for EtherNet/IP, Profinet, Powerlink, and Modbus-TCP protocol are also available. To get started, register on the HMS website to download the demo software and getting started guide.
