ET1100, ET1200 EtherCAT 57 ET1100, ET1200 | EtherCAT ASICs The ET1100 and ET1200 EtherCAT ASICs offer a cost-effective and compact solution for realising EtherCAT slaves. They process the EtherCAT protocol in the hardware and therefore ensure high-performance and real-time capability, independent of any downstream slave microcontrollers and associated software. Through their three process data interfaces – digital I/O, SPI and 8/16 bit µC (not for ET1200) – the EtherCAT ASICs enable realisation of simple digital modules without microcontrollers and development of intelligent devices with own processor. Both ASICs feature distributed clocks that enable high-precision synchronisation (
