Innovasic Semiconductor Adds 1-Port EtherNet/IP and Profinet RapID Platform to its Industrial Ethernet Connectivity Solutions
1-Port version lowers bill-of-materials cost for star network topologies
ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Innovasic Semiconductor is pleased to announce the availability of the 1-Port RapID(TM) Platform for EtherNet/IP adapters and Profinet devices as part of the company's constant effort to provide the lowest cost Industrial Ethernet solutions.
"As with our previously released 2-port version, Innovasic's 1-port RapID Platform provides quick and easy EtherNet/IP or Profinet connectivity," said Tom Weingartner, Innovasic's Vice President, Marketing. "And whether you need 1-port or 2-ports, the same RapID Platform hardware can be used for both Industrial Ethernet protocols," he added.
The 1-port and 2-port RapID Platforms support EtherNet/IP - November 2010 release and Profinet version 2.2, and they 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 and Profinet conformance including electronic schematics, bill of materials, and layout files, as well as all necessary software, stacks, and development environment. All software is royalty-free with no hidden fees.
The RapID Platform is based on Innovasic's fido1100 communication controller and 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. 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. Cycle times down to 1 ms are achieved utilizing the fido1100's unique deterministic hardware and software architecture.
The 1-Port EtherNet/IP and Profinet RapID Platforms are available on the Innovasic website in December 2010. The 2-Port versions are available now. Please go to http://www.innovasic.com/developer-portal/ to register and download the platform for a free evaluation.
