EtherCAT

rt-labs provides EtherCAT development tools and stacks for embedded devices.


Applications/Profiles

EtherCAT Automation Protocol (EAP)The EtherCAT Automation Protocol (EAP) specifies communication services and protocols for Master devices and Ethernet-based devices connected with a standard
CiA 402 drive profile libraryEtherCAT conformant slave application sample for the XMC4x board.

Communication stacks

EtherCAT Master Library (SOEM)SOEM (Simple Open EtherCAT Master) is an opensource EtherCAT master stack which is very easy to use and provides a small footprint. It is a good alternative to more complex stacks on the market and is especially well suited for embedded systems.
EtherCAT Slave Library (SOES)SOES EtherCAT Slave Library, written in C, used to write custom EtherCAT Slave applications. Can run on a large number
