Product overview


The STDES-8PIOLM4P is an 8-port IO-Link master design based on the IOLM4P.

The IOLM4P is an all-in-one IO-Link master 4-port solution and it has the protocol stack programmed by the ST partner TEConcept.

It enables a fast and easy 8-port IO-Link master prototype, with a competitive cost, which can greatly reduce the time to market for the customers multiport IO-Link master design.

The STDES-8PIOLM4P is a reference design board with a L6360TR as an IO-Link device transceiver.

The IOLM4P is STM32L431CB MCU with IO-Link master stack.

The STM32F746ZG is the main controller to play as gateway between USB/Ethernet and IO-Link.

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

The STDES-8PIOLM4P is a turnkey solution ready for industrialization.

The IOLM4P is based on a STM32F746ZG MCU preprogrammed by Arrow Electronics integrated TEConcept IO-Link master stack, easy to develop for the customer.

A dedicated SWD 5-pin connector can program the microcontroller STM32F746ZG.

This STDES-8PIOLM4P is an ST total solution with one-stop BOM purchasing.
