Multiple protocols

Multiple protocols

Supports 30+ industrial Ethernet protocols such as EtherCAT, PROFINET, and more

Multiple protocols

Build on your foundation

Extend your existing solution to Industrial Ethernet while reusing your hardware and software platform

Multiple protocols


Easy migration from existing EtherCAT® ASICs for more performance, scalability and software upgradability

Typical Industrial Communication Solution and TI Integrated Industrial Communication Solution

Programmable-Realtime Unit Industrial Communications Subsystem (PRU-ICSS) features:

  • One device enables multiple communications protocols:
    • EtherCAT, Profibus, Profinet, Sercos, EtherNet/IP, POWERLINK, and more Supports Master and Slave
  • Simply change firmware to move from one protocol to the next
  • TI industrial communications solutions are fully tested, certified, and supported
  • Software available with PRU-ICSS Industrial Software Kit

In addition to Industrial Ethernet, Fieldbus, interface, and redundancy protocols are available for the PRU-ICSS, including certified solutions for EtherCAT, Profinet, EtherNet/IP, Profibus, PowerLink, Sercos III, etc.
