Classes & Workshops

EtherCAT for Embedded Systems

A two day workshop combining theory with practical developing elements enables the participants to start developing their own projects after having completed the class.


Brief summary of topics covered:

  • Introduction to EtherCAT. Get to know the basics of EtherCAT.
  • Developing EtherCAT Masters. Learn how to develop EtherCAT Masters using SOEM (Simple Open EtherCAT Master) stack
  • Developing EtherCAT Slaves. Learn how to develop EtherCAT Slaves using SOES (Simple Open EtherCAT Slave) stack
  • Application Layer
  • Data Link Layer

The workshop is hands-on and uses the following tools and hardware:

  • rt-collab Workbench
  • rt-labs EtherCAT SDK
  • Infineon XMC48 relax kit

By combining important theory with plenty of hands-on exercises, it ensures that attendees leave the course fully ready to develop EtherCAT Masters/Slaves.

rt-labs instructors are all experienced developers who have used EtherCAT technology extensively, and are also extremely familiar with the internal workings of the software components.

Normally a workshop starts with an introduction to EtherCAT and how a EtherCAT system can be used and deployed. Then practical sessions in how to use and integrate SOEM (Simple Open EtherCat Master stack) och SOES (Simple Open EtherCAT Slave stack) follows.
