The AX58400 EtherCAT Slave Controller with Dual-Core MCU is a System-in-Package (SiP) product based on the STM32H755 microcontroller from STMicroelectronics. AX58400 is equipped with Dual-Core 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M7 core with DSP extension runs up to 480 MHz, 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M4 core with Adaptive Real-Time Accelerator (ST ART Accelerator™) runs up to 240 MHz and EtherCAT Slave Controller (ESC) with two integrated Fast Ethernet PHYs. AX58400 supports AES/TDES/HASH/HMAC hardware cryptographic accelerators, ROP/PCROP/Anti-tamper security techniques, true random number generator, and additional communication interfaces such as 10/100Mbps Ethernet MAC, USB 2.0 OTG, Camera I/F, TFT-LCD Controller, JPEG Codec, SPI/UART/I2C/I2S/SAI/CAN/SDMMC/ADC/DAC/HDMI-CEC/PWM/DFSDM, etc.
AX58400 EtherCAT Slave Controller (ESC) is integrated with two embedded Fast Ethernet PHYs and supports 9 Kbytes DPRAM, 8 FMMUs, 8 sync managers and 64‐bit distributed clock. The AX58400 is interoperable with all EtherCAT systems wit h standard EtherCAT protocols such as CoE, FoE, VoE, etc., and is suitable for various industrial automa on fieldbus applications, such as motor/motion control, digital I/O control, sensors data acquisition, robotics, EtherCAT to IO‐Link master gateway, EtherCAT to Modbus TCP gateway, EtherCAT Junction slave module, EtherCAT communication module, etc.
To simplify AX58400 EtherCAT products design, ASIX offers AX58400 evaluation boards/demo kits and free Board Support Package (BSP), which includes datasheet, reference schematics, PCB design guidelines, hardware/software design guides, software tools, sample firmware sources, etc. for designers to easily design AX58400 EtherCAT slave products.
