MECHATROLINK-III Master/Slave IP Core

MECHATROLINK-III Master/Slave IP Core

It is the best for the network that emphasis on precise synchronous control and high speed.

MECHATROLINK-III developed by MECHATROLINK Members association as a standard, to satisfy the demand of the motion field network market, high more than before a transmission speed, the transmission cycle time, and the transmission distance and the number of maximum slaves required.

  • Have CPU built-in FPGA is intelligent function to use RTOS be achieved with 1chip.
  • Connect FPGA internal resource: asynchronous buss
  • Max 66MHz Clock, High-speed, synchronous buss as PCI Express in the connection, it is possible to connect it without decreasing throughput.
