The IO-Link Gateway Development Board allows developing the IO-Link firmware for the netX processor without already having a final design of the planned IO-Link device. So, hardware and software development can be accomplished in parallel. The board is equipped with 8 IO-Link master ICs L6360.
The IO-Link Gateway Development Board provides the all necessary interfaces for the development and test of netX-based IO-Link applications. The design of the board contains:
- 8 IO-Link communication channels with L6360 (each with standard M12 connectors and 4 LEDs)
- 2 Real-time Ethernet communication channels (each with standard M12 connectors and LEDs)
- USB interface for firmware update
- JTAG interface to connect with hardware debugging equipment
