Collaboration delivers communication solution for industrial Ethernet-APL

15-07-2021 | Segger | Design & Manufacture

SEGGER Microcontroller collaborates with Analog Devices, providing embedded engineers with a new solution for developing industrial Ethernet applications, including the new Ethernet-APL standard.


The collaboration between the two companies revolves around emNet, SEGGER’s IP stack, and the ADIN1110, Analog Devices' robust, low-power industrial 10BASE-T1L Ethernet MAC-PHY device. The combination of emNet and ADIN1110 facilitates applications with minimum energy consumption, fast transmission rates, and high reliability.


For an Ethernet application with a low-power host processor at a maximum transmission rate, the emNet IP stack is a perfect choice. It merges maximum performance with minimal memory needs and simple integration without configuration effort. The ADIN1110 MAC-PHY simplifies connectivity to any low-power processor through an SPI interface, giving increased flexibility on processor selection.


“The joint effort by SEGGER and Analog Devices enables customers to quickly integrate a TCP/IP-based solution in their devices,” said Stefan Lueder, project manager Ethernet-APL integration at SIEMENS.


“ADI’s new ADIN1110 10BASE-T1L MAC-PHY and SEGGER's emNet combine to provide an extremely fast path to market for low power, single pair ethernet communications solution. This is ideal for sensor or actuator nodes for many use cases, including those in hazardous areas,” said Mick McCarthy, director of Industrial Ethernet Technology at Analog Devices.


“What customers want from an IP stack is a combination of maximum performance and the simplest implementation without major configuration effort,” said SEGGER's CEO, Ivo Geilenbruegge. “Through our collaboration with Analog Devices, industrial customers get the best possible solution because of its high performance, lowest power and ease of implementation.”
