PROFINET IO Device: Ready-to-solder netX Design in stamp size



  • Rapid alternative to an own development
  • Complete Slave interface with smallest footprint
  • Prototyping or SMD series production
  • One hardware for all Real-Time Ethernet systems
  • Host connection via Dual-Port Memory or SPI
  • Combines advantages of an ASIC with the benefits of a Module

Product Description

netRAPID is the rapid and secure alternative to developing your own slave using a communication controller. As stamp-sized netX chip carrier, it is integrated into the customer hardware in the same way as a QFP part. It is designed for automated SMD series production as well as for rapid prototyping.

neRAPID 52-RE is optimized for minimum space requirements. Means the 32 x 32 mm compact netX carrier contains all necessary operating components, such as magnetics, SQI flash and netX multi-protocol chip. Its focus is on Real-Time Ethernet communication and the protocol stack will be executed in the internal RAM of the netX. With netRAPID 52-RE the hardware development is reduced to only adding network connector and LEDs. A simple 2-layer baseboard is sufficient.

Full functionality of netRAPID is enabled via licensed firmware, which needs to be acquired once and loaded during manufacturing process.
