EtherCAT

Applications/Profiles

EtherCAT Automation Protocol (EAP)EtherCATThe EtherCAT Automation Protocol (EAP) specifies communication services and protocols for Master devices and Ethernet-based devices connected with a standard Ethernet network.

Communication stacks

EtherCAT Master Library (SOEM)EtherCATSOEM (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)EtherCATSOES EtherCAT Slave Library, written in C, used to write custom EtherCAT Slave applications.

EtherCAT for Embedded SystemsEtherCATThis two-day workshop is designed to give developers a thorough understanding of EtherCAT development in embedded systems. By combining important theory with plenty of hands-on exercises, it ensures that attendees leave the course fully ready to develop EtherCAT Masters/Slaves. It is, quite simply, the most cost-effective first step for any professional development team about to start using EtherCAT in embedded systems
