Embedded module for IoT networks


Embedded module for IoT networks

Deutschmann Automation presents UNIGATE IC2 Profibus, the first member of its new UNIGATE IC2 embedded series. The all-in-one bus nodes UNIGATE IC2 are based on the ARM Cortex-M4 processor technology and offer a significant performance improvemernt compared to the proven UNIGATE IC. The ready-to-use UNIGATE IC2 Profibus module provides reliable Profibus connectivity and can be quickly and easily installed in end devices or sensor systems. This means that development costs and market introduction of network-compatible products can be significantly optimized.

Protocol connection of the UNIGATE IC2 module to the terminal device is implemented flexibly by script programming with the free Protocol Developer tool from Deutschmann Automation. With the UNIGATE IC2 embedded series, the script execution time can be reduced by a factor of 50 to 80, depending on the commands used, compared to predecessor products. With simple scripts, execution times in the microsecond range are possible. UNIGATE IC2 modules are also able to process large scripts very quickly.

Compared to UNIGATE IC, the fast UNIGATE IC2 embedded series achieves much higher transfer rates for communication via SPI or UART. The SPI bus currently achieves a transfer rate of 12 Mbit/s in master mode, 33 Mbit/s are being tested. In slave mode, 10 Mbit/s are achieved. The UART interface supports baud rates of up to 7.5 Mbaud. The UNIGATE IC2 series is pin-compatible with the widely used UNIGATE IC embedded solutions from Deutschmann, which continue to be available and are supported. The scope of performance of the firmware is identical and existing scripts for protocol connection of the all-in-one bus nodes can still be used. Under certain circumstances, minor adjustments may be necessary due to the changed timing.

With the development of UNIGATE IC2 Profibus, Deutschmann Automation is responding to the still strong demand for fieldbus modules, which have to meet ever higher performance requirements. UNIGATE IC2 is now available in the Profibus version and will soon be available for Fast Ethernet / ModbusTCP and EtherCAT.
