Can i.MX8M Mini support OpenIL with EtheaCAT function?

Hi,

    We are planning to develop EtherCAT PLC by i.MX8M mini.

    We have evaluated the OpenIL with EtherCAT funciton on LS1021 platform, BUT LS1021 (or LS104x) is to expensive to us. We evaluated other NXP productions, and found that i.MX8M mini is suitable to us, but i.MX8M mini now is not supported by OpenIL with EtherCAT function.

    Our question : 1.Can i.MX8M mini support OpenIL with EtherCAT function?

                           2.If it is not supported officially, How can we transplant the OpenIL to i.MX8M mini?

                           3.Can NXP support other service to help us ? (Maybe it requires fees.)

    Thanks.

Hello,

  generally OpenIL can be supported by i.MX devices.

  I think it is needed to apply to Pro Support for more details.
