The TPS driver package (API) for PROFINET communication TPS-1 features:

  • PROFINET device chip
  • Integrated PROFINET CPU
  • CPU interface (SPI slave – max. 25 MHz or 8/16 bit parallel Motorola/Intel mode) for  use with an external host CPU
  • SPI master interface for direct connection of SPI slaves (to exchange process data)
  • 48 GPIO for direct connection of digital peripheral signals (digital I/Os)
  • Support of PROFINET I/O communication channels NRT, RT, and IRT
  • Watchdog support for connected host CPUs
  • Compliance with PROFINET conformance class C
  • Hardware support for time-critical PROFINET protocols, including PTCP
  • Firmware download during the manufacturing process via JTAG boundary scan interface, Ethernet, or UART interface
  • Firmware update via Ethernet interface with BOOTP/TFTP
  • Easy configuration of host interfaces and GPIOs
  • Two Fast Ethernet ports with integrated PHYs
  • 100 Mbit full duplex data transmission, IRT bridge delay < 3 μsec, auto negotiation, auto cross-over
  • Auto polarity, support for 100Base-TX and 100Base-FX ports, monitoring of fiber-optic transmission links with integrated I2C interfaces
  • Power dissipation around 800 mW with host interface and two ports
  • Serial (SPI up to 25 MHz) and parallel (8 or 16 bit) interface for use with an external host CPU
  • 1016 byte maximum data for cyclic exchange, dynamically distributed to two ARs (inclusive IOxS )
  • Two application relation available, shared device supported
  • The TPS-1 firmware allows a up to 64 slot/subslots (e.g. one slot with up to 64 subslots)
