As industry moves towards the
Renesas' R-IN32M3 series of devices significantly improves industrial Ethernet network performance with optimized hardware accelerators, while reducing costs by supporting multiple protocols such as EtherCAT, CC-Link IE, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, CANopen and others, from a single device. It can be used for real-time network communication in gateways, I/O controllers, PLCs/PACs, embedded controllers, industrial drives and countless other networked applications. Its exceptional design flexibility allows one system design to serve a diversity of networks and applications.
To further ease the development, a new platform for this R-IN32M3 is now available in collaboration with
Renesas' R-IN32M3 platform solution serves as a key enabler to fulfill the Internet-of-Things (IoT) requirements in an industrial environment. The collaboration of the tools from
