With this product IBV offers a software solution for the implementation of the Ethernet POWERLINK communication protocol on the real-time operating system QNX. The communication stack is based on the open source package “openPOWERLINK”. For standard tasks the Ethernet communication can be performed via the network driver of QNX. As an option, IBV offers optimized link layer drivers (e.g. for TI Sitara) to achieve shorter cycle times and lower CPU load.
