Protocol Stacks of MicroControl speed up Software Development
Central availability of protocol stacks for all common BUS systems
Proven in tens of thousands of applications, MicroControl's protocol stacks speed up software developement and help designers and engineers to define interfaces. Our CANopen and J1939 protocol stacks are set for the future and offer the possibility to migrate from CAN Classic to CAN FD at any time.
In addition, MicroControl's protocol stacks provide further advantages:
- They are safe
For more than 20 years, MicroControl has been working actively in the relevant user organizations such as CiA (CAN in Automation), ETG (EtherCAT Technology Group) and PNO (PROFIBUS Nutzerorganisation). MicroControl's expertise in the basics and trends provide additional planning dependability. MicroControl's presence in the BUS market guarantees central availability of protocol stacks for all common BUS systems.
- They speed up processes
These software components are based on standard elements and can easily be customized which will sustainably increase transparency and efficiency. Valuable time can be saved by speeding up development and production processes which will reduce times to market.
- They are more efficient
MicroControl protocol stacks save valuable ressources of your company as they reduce the time needed for information and training, diminish possible sources of error and facilitate control and performance functions. Tasks can be performed in a safer, faster and more efficient way.
The protocol stacks are optimized to
- low resource comsumption (RAM/Flash)
- quick and easy integration
- different development environments (IDEs)
- requirements of software designers
MicroControl's modular structure facilitates adjustment of the protocol stack to tasks and environments in an ideal way. A variety of different hardware platforms may be integrated. The system may easily be extended by adding further drivers and new hardware components.
MicroControl Code Generator
The ideal protocol stack for all kinds of tasks. Safe and fast definition. With MicroControl's Code Generator.
- The graphic interface facilitates selection and configuration of the desired protocol components. Existing libraries and software components may also be used.
- The modular structure of the protocol stacks is guaranteed at any time.
- Different hardware platforms can be integrated and adjusted.
- Drivers for functional extensions and additional hardware components can be installed at any time.
Fair partnership policy offers company licence and support
MicroControl's protocol stacks facilitate implementation of interfaces and support designers and engineers to complete their tasks in a reliable, quick and more efficient way.
Users of MicroControl protocol stacks benefit from 12 months free support after initial implementation. A subsequent optional maintenance agreement will contain automatic updates of the software.
MicroControl's customers also benefit from a cost-saving company license (in comparison with common runtime licenses). Are you interested? We will be pleased to answer your questions about aspects and contents of our Fair Partnership policy.
Numerous companies worldwide benefit from our CANopen protocol stacks. The CANopen protocol stacks have been developed to combine both low storage requirements and an optimized performance range. We offer the solution for various needs: our CANopen Master for complex control systems, CANopen Slave for the development of intelligent sensors and actuators and CANopen Bootloader for programming via the CAN interface. The functionality of the protocol stack is verified through the conformance test tool of CiA.
The J1939 source code comprises the complete functionality for the integration of the J1939 standards into your own devices. Easy setting options facilitate convenient adjustment to a target product. Optional add-ons allow creation of ECUs for ISOBUS or NMEA2000 applications. The Address Claiming protocol is supported completely.
Our EtherCAT slave equipped with full-range CoE functionaltiy has been developed on the code base of our well-established CANopen slave protocol stack. Via a defined interface the EtherCAT slave controller (ESC) can be connected to any microcontroller device. The CoE object directory can be enhanced by device profiles. The CoE implementation supports SDO information protocol as well as variable PDO assignment and mapping.
Our PROFINET device stack has been designed for cyclic interchange of process data with a controller. Flexible implementation of slots, subslots, indices and cyclic process data facilitate quick and easy connection of different devices. The stack is „ready-to-use“ for one class A 1-port device. To simplify certification of the final product we use the current PROFINET IO tester to perform pre-certifications in the process.
