EVB-LAN9252-3PORT
LAN9252 – 3-Port EtherCAT Slave controller Evaluation Kit with SPI PDI interface

The LAN9252-3PORT EVB is an 3-Port EtherCAT slave controller which addresses our customers’ requests for a standalone platform to develop an EtherCAT slave device with SPI/SQI as the PDI Interface

This board supports on-board PIC32MX or option for other SoC’s. It supports three network connections with two integrated PHY’s in RJ45 sockets and Option for interfacing any third party PHY using MII interface .  For flexible network configuration Port 1 or Port 3 can be configured as upstream port. Integrated PHY’s optionally fit optical interfaces to accommodate fiber via an SFP module. This board is delivered in basic DIGIO mode and on power-up will appear to a host as an EtherCAT slave. The designer has freedom to develop further using PIC32MX

Features
  • The EVB-LAN9252-3PORT supports two Integrated PHY's via on board RJ45 Connectors and one External PHY through MII interface
  • The EVB-LAN9252-3PORT supports SPI and SQI based PDI configurations with onboard PIC32MX and option to plug-in third part SOC's like Beagle Bone Black
  • Option for onboard Fiber Interface via SFP module
  • The onboard EEPROM to configure the EtherCAT salve configuration
