The F751 is a single Eurocard CompactPCI® DeviceNet controller; that only requires one slot on the CompactPCI® bus.
It features a DeviceNet interface supporting an ISO high-speed of up to 500 kBit/s. The physical interface is isolated from the system.
Master or Slave protocol configuration can easily be done by loadable firmware. The complete protocol stack is executed on the F751, and data exchange to the host is done via Dual-Port-Memory or DMA.
The F751 is based on the netX SOC. This highly integrated network controller supports parallel data transmission via several data paths between the internal CPU and graphics engines, and the communication and host controllers. The netX SOC also controls the on-board memory and other peripheral interfaces such as UARTS, USB, SPI or I²C.
Communication works via a dual-port SRAM interface and is supported by window and pointer access mechanism. Interrupts are available in both directions from F751 to host and from host to F751.
The F751 supports a wide range of operating systems including Windows®, Windows® CE, Linux and VxWorks®.
The F751 has been designed for mission-critical industrial and for mobile applications with demand for high resistance regarding temperature, shock and vibration.
