• Mentor Graphics® Nucleus® real-time operating system (RTOS) advances real-time EtherCAT® performance for industrial automation with integration to the Koenig-pa GmbH (KPA) EtherCAT® Master stack.
• The reference software drastically reduces development costs and time to market for ARM®-based SOCs by providing the building blocks to develop a highly optimized industrial automation solution.
• The solution provides flexibility to customize functionality for industrial applications.

Mentor Graphics Corporation today announced EtherCAT Master protocol support for the Mentor® Embedded Nucleus® real-time operating system (RTOS) targeting high-performance, next-generation industrial automation devices. The Nucleus RTOS combined with the KPA EtherCAT Master stack provides a fully integrated reference software solution that streamlines development time and cost for device developers. Designed to meet the rigorous timing requirements for industrial automation, the reference solution delivers EtherCAT cycle times of 100 microsecond cycles (10,000 frames per second) with an extremely low jitter rate for precise device synchronization. The Nucleus RTOS with KPA EtherCAT Master protocol is suitable for devices with hard and soft real-time requirements in industrial automation, as well as medical, energy and other market segments.

The need for high speed, time synchronization and efficiency in industrial automation networks places new requirements on industrial device manufacturers. EtherCAT is a highly scalable Ethernet protocol that is being adopted at a rapid rate. The Nucleus RTOS with KPA EtherCAT Master provides industrial device manufacturers with a fully integrated solution that improves communication performance. This results in greater throughput to reduce manufacturing cost, improve yield and system accuracy. The reference solution provides developers with a lightweight, highly scalable solution that can be configured for ARM®-based platforms.

The low-overhead KPA EtherCAT stack has been optimized for embedded devices. The real-time performance of the Nucleus RTOS and the deterministic qualities of EtherCAT communication provides the speed and synchronization required in today’s industrial automation devices. The EtherCAT solution includes the KPA EtherCAT Studio configuration tool, and sample applications which have been integrated with Nucleus RTOS and the Sourcery™ CodeBench integrated development environment (IDE).

Commentary:
