ADI adds POWERLINK to RapID platform network interface

Analog Devices has added POWERLINK, a real-time industrial Ethernet protocol, to the RapID Platform Network Interface developed by the company’s Deterministic Ethernet Technology Group. The complete, pre-tested, pre-certified solution enables system designers to add Industrial Ethernet to an existing product or to a new product in the fastest time and at the lowest cost.

With the RapID Platform Network Interface, system designers have the flexibility to embed the RapID Platform into their field device application as a module or completely embed the module’s components into the field device’s circuit card. Either way, previous users have confirmed the reliability and flexibility of the RapID Platform which also removes the development risk when managing the industrial protocol and network traffic for a host processor.
