PROFIBUS, CAN and RS232 are extensively used in communications networks in factories, buildings, transport infrastructures and monitoring/control equipment in our cities. Ethernet offers higher bandwidth and, in many cases, lowers cost--especially when deployed in daisy-chain topology. Technologies such as EtherCAT, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP are testament to this. In this session, we will explore how QorIQ processor families can help equipment manufacturers span this landscape using a QUICC Engine (QE) controller for UART/Ethernet-based protocol implementation, a Enhanced Triple Speed Ethernet Controller (eTSEC) for intelligent Ethernet classification and 2-port switching, and an eight-port gigabit Ethernet switch for wire-rate switching. Reference design software and hardware files will be available to help you start your own PROFIBUS and PROFINET designs.
