I've searched in the forum about EtherCAT topic before writing this post. Is there any example or API, which is about EtherCAT slave implementation on a Blackfin processor? Preferbly BF527, CrossCore IDE.
If you are asking about the EtherCAT slave implementation on BF527, it is NOT available. Please let us know if this is requirement for your product. If yes, let us know the Specific requirements for EtherCAT for your product (like: required cycle time, response time, Synchronization and Total number of nodes in the network). Just to reiterate, to support EtherCAT you may need hardwareIP from beckoff for Layer2 and other higher layers can be implemented in Microcontroller. You can contact Industrail communications team for further information on this.
thanks for the advice. I've contacted EtherCAT organization group. They offer software stack for microcontroller in application layer of slave devices. It seems that no specific API for Blackfin is required.
