Multi-Protocol SoC With Two ARM Cortex-M4 Processor Cores Supports Two CAN Bus Controllers

Posted by Industry News on

netX 90 Industrial Communication SoC

Hilscher announced the release of their netX 90, an addition to its netX family of single-chip network controller ASICs. The netX 90 is the latest connectivity chip for slave devices. The chip addresses the fact that a large proportion of slave devices in use today will have to be replaced and/or updated if cyber risk threats are to be countered adequately for cloud-based and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications.

netX 90 is a dual processor chip with all the network connectivity common to Hilscher products, including firmware updating of protocols. It’s divided into two halves: RTE and fieldbus protocols are supported on the network-facing side while device-specific protocols (I/O, EnDat, Biss, and many other peripherals) are supported on the applications (slave-facing) side. In between are some common features such as on-chip diagnostics.

netX 90 comes with a full eco-system of development boards, accessories and software. JTAG developers’ kits are available and there’s an SoC solution called netRAPID 90 featuring netX 90 mounted on a small PCB, for direct embedding onto a motherboard.

  • First Industrial Ethernet node in 10x10 mm2 with two ARM® Cortex®-M4 processor cores, on-chip Flash, analog/mixed signal, and integrated PHYs
  • Fulfills the highest demand on flexibility, determinism, and performance in terms of multiprotocol capability and low latency for short cycle times
  • Enables developers to implement a profound secure by design concept compliant to the IEC 62443 series for industrial automation security
  • Improves the application design of high-reliable systems with built-in diagnostics and enhanced data integrity for IIoT-enabled services
  • Support of two CAN Bus (2.0B, SJA1000) Controllers

Arduino-Due-Based USB Gateway With Two CAN Bus Ports

The Due Core is a compact version of the Arduino DUE. It integrates all peripherals required for the MCU, and all GPIO are connected to 2.54mm connectors. As a standard MCU core, the board has the following features:

  • Compact size: All components are put on a 54 x 58mm 4-Layers PCB. All IOs are connected to a 116-pin 2.54 standard connector.
  • Easy to use: All IOs are connected to 116pin 2.54 standard connector. It requires only a 5 VDC power supply to make it work.
  • Stable design: High-quality 4-layer PCB layout, two 5V to 3.3V LDO onboard, one for digital and one for analog processing. Separate AVCC and AGND, to ensure optimum analog performance.
  • Easy to set up the development environment: Uploading sketches through standard 6-pin UART interface, standard Micro usb connector, full use of existing resources.
  • User-friendly design: Rich LED status indication, two onboard buttons, one is for MCU reset, and one is for Flash Erase. Unique jumper erase protection against the flash erased by mistake.
  • Rich resources: All IOs are available for the user. The onboard I2C EEPROM is designed to compensate for the shortcomings of the standard SAM3X8E, which has no built-in EEPROM.

The jCOM.DUE.CORE-B board is powered either by the USB port connection (either the programming or native USB) or through an external power supply supporting an input voltage of 7 to 36 VDC.
