    Avnet’s MicroZed Industry 4.0 Ethernet Kit is a versatile platform for industrial networking applications that are always deterministic, have zero downtime, yet maintain flexibility to keep pace with changing protocol standards.

     

    Codenamed I4EK, this 3-port Ethernet platform (2 control, plus 1 enterprise) is for developers who want to start prototyping immediately with any of the following protocols.

     

    • HSR/PRP
    • EtherCAT
    • Powerlink
    • Profinet RT/IRT
    • EtherNet/IP
    • Modbus-TCP

     

    The silicon technology that enables I4EK is the Xilinx Zynq-7000™ SoC. This all-in-one device brings together software programmability, real-time processing, and programmable hardware offloading.

     

    Avnet’s MicroZed 7020 SOM  combines the Zynq SoC, flash and DDR3 memory, a robust power architecture, plus USB and Ethernet ports. These features are brought together in a compact system-on-module intended for quick prototype, yet MicroZed is also rugged and meant for deployment in your end application, even within industrial temperature environments.

     

    With proven IP, pre-built designs, and a deployable reference platform, your steps from concept to production are reduced.

     

        1.  Evaluate the Zynq SoC and IP performance using the I4EK’s MicroZed SOM
        2.  Prototype your system using best-in-class IP, software APIs, and drivers
        3.  Deploy your end product with the MicroZed SOM plus your customizations
        4.  Multi-protocol Industrial Ethernet with HMS

     

    Designers using the I4EK can quickly evaluate HMS Anybus® IP which provides the most widely used Industrial Ethernet protocols with a unified API. The result is seamless hardware and software integration across networks. Protocol support includes EtherCAT®, Powerlink, PROFINET® RT/IRT, EtherNet/IP™, and Modbus-TCP.

     

    No startup fees for evaluation and development. Deployed products are licensed with a tiny 1-wire security chip. To get started, register on the HMS website to download the demo software and getting started guide.

    HSR/PRP Zero Downtime with SoC-e

    Building reliable networks with zero-downtime just got easier. Avnet partnered with SoC-e and Xilinx to create a prototype platform for networks using HSR and PRP protocols.

     

    Unfamiliar with these protocols?

    Read the new co-authored technical article published.

     

    Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT (IIoT) systems rely on robust communication networks. Protocols such as HSR (High-availability Seamless Redundancy) and PRP (Parallel Redundancy Protocol) ensure high availability for networks on critical infrastructure, offering zero-delay recovery time and no frames lost in the case of a network failure.

    Download the reference design to evaluate HSR/PRP IP, connecting the I4EK to your PC or plug it into your existing system to quickly test compatibility.
