The AX58200 is a 2/3-port EtherCAT Slave Controller SoC with two integrated Fast Ethernet PHYs. AX58200 is equipped with ARM® Cortex®-M4F core with DSP extension runs up to 192 MHz, embedded 512 KB dual bank Flash memory for supporting Over-The-Air (OTA) firmware upgrade, embedded 160 KB SRAM which includes 32 KB cache supporting eXecute-In-Place (XIP) to speed up the code execution from external SPI Flash. Factory pre-loaded 32 KB bootloader for secure boot, built-in 4 KB Secure Protection ROM for providing a safe space to save confidential program or data. Supports additional communication interfaces such as 10/100Mbps Ethernet MAC with RMII and hardware cryptography accelerator, HS USB OTG, SPI/UART/I2C/I2S/CAN/PWM, etc.
The AX58200 EtherCAT Slave Controller integrates two embedded Fast Ethernet PHYs which can support both copper and fiber Ethernet applications, embedded 9 KB RAM, eight Fieldbus Memory Management Units (FMMUs), eight Sync Managers and 64-bit distributed clock. AX58200 is interoperable with all EtherCAT systems with standard EtherCAT protocols such as CoE, FoE, VoE, etc. and is suitable for motor/motion control, digital I/O control, sensors data acquisition, robotics, EtherCAT IO-Link master, EtherCAT Junction slave module, etc. industrial automation fieldbus applications.
The AX58200 is available in small 144-pin HSFBGA 10x10 mm, 0.8 mm pitch, RoHS compliant package and in operating temperature range from -40 to 85°C, -40 to 105°C.
To simplify AX58200 EtherCAT products design, ASIX provides AX58200 evaluation board, demo kits and free Board Support Package (BSP) which includes reference schematics, PCB design guidelines, hardware/software design guides, software tools, sample firmware sources, etc. for designers to easily design the AX58200 EtherCAT slave products.
