Product overview


The STDES-8PH7TMG is an 8-port IO-Link master board design. It is based on the STM32H743ZI, which is a high-performance MCU based on the high-performance Arm Cortex®-M0+ 32-bit RISC core and the IO-Link master PHY L6360. The L6360 is an IO-Link communication master transceiver IC.

The VN808CM-E is an octal channel high side driver that can be used to provide the VCC to the L6360 or to the IO-Link device power supply.

The Ethernet IP function is implemented through an external Ethernet PHY KSZ8863, which has two PHY units and supports both 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX.

A tool called IO-Link device tool V5.1–PE (by an ST partner, TMG) can be used to evaluate the 8-port IO-Link master function.

The Ethernet IP function is already supported as a high-level communication system. Further integrations, like PROFINET, are possible.

This STDES-8PH7TMG is a reference board designed with: the L6360 as IO-Link master transceiver, high performance: the STM32H743ZI as main controller and the L7986A as power supply.

The STDES-8PH7TMG uses the TMG stack and is ready for industrialization.

The use of SLVU2.8-4A1 as voltage suppressors, to protect components, which are connected to data and transmission lines against ESD.

This STDES-8PH7TMG works with an IO-Link device and control tool GUI software with the corresponding IODD file.

The STDES-8PH7TMG can connect with a PC through the Ethernet. It uses an M12 cable to be connected to an IO-Link device. This solution configures an IO-Link device through the TMG GUI software.
