EM Switch - Compatibility to multiple standards with a path to TSN in the future.
The challenge when designing products that need to support Industrial Ethernet is to select a reference design which is compatible with a variety of different standards while providing flexibility for future enhancements. The fido5000 REM switch from Analog Devices supports all major Industrial Ethernet protocols and connects to any processor to build any field device or controller application while providing a path to tomorrow's Industry 4.0 converged networks based Time Sensitive Networking (TSN). The protocols supported are PROFINET Class C (IRT) and Class B (RT), EtherNet/IP with and without DLR, Modbus TCP, EtherCAT, SERCOS, and POWERLINK.
