Flag/report this product
Freescale’s new programmable logic controller (PLC) reference platform eases the development of industrial control systems, allowing the use of IEC 61499 and IEC 61131-3 standard PLC programming languages like ladder diagram and function block diagram. The PLC reference platform integrates well-established EtherCAT protocol software from KPA (koenig-pa GmbH) with ISaGRAF Firmware and QNX Neutrino RTOS on the high-performance Freescale QorIQ P1025 processor.

  • Integrated ISaGRAF Firmware, KPA EtherCAT Master stack and QNX Neutrino RTOS on the QorIQ P1 Tower module
  • EtherCAT master protocol and customer control application run simultaneously on a single QorIQ P1025 processor to deliver one millisecond EtherCAT master cycle time
  • QorIQ P1 processors can also provide simultaneous support for complex applications, as well as additional industrial protocols like PROFINET, PROFIBUS and EtherNet/IP
  • Powerful development tools include the KPA EtherCAT Studio, ISaGRAF 6 Workbench, QNX Momentics Tool Suite, and Freescale CodeWarrior Development Suite
  • ISaGRAF 6 Workbench and Firmware kernel can fully support all IEC 61499 and IEC 61131-3 standard PLC programming languages
  • Software and hardware developed on TWR-P1025 can be easily deployed on a range of QorIQ P1 processors, including the P1012, P1021, P1016 and P1025 processors
  • Commercial EtherCAT Master stack available from KPA
  • Commercial Neutrino RTOS available from QNX
