Implementing Flexible Industrial Ethernet Solutions

Altera

Overview

Implementing Ethernet-based industrial networks is becoming more
popular, due to their low costs, long cabling lengths, and ability to
integrate seamlessly with corporate networks. However, not all
Ethernet-based industrial network protocols are equal, and the
technology is evolving rapidly. Equipment manufacturers must support
many different protocols and track new protocol developments.

Traditionally, manufacturers would design a modular system with
plug-in units that support each different protocol. A more flexible and
elegant solution is to use and reprogram a low-cost FPGA instead of
plugging in different pieces of hardware.

With an FPGA, manufacturers can support any 802.3-based industrial
Ethernet protocol (past or future) from a single board design,
which simplifies the board's development, support, and maintenance. By
taking advantage of low-cost FPGAs' advanced capabilities, a wide range
of IP, and powerful development tools, you can reduce the cost,
increase the flexibility, and minimize the time-to-market of your
industrial Ethernet products.
