ASIX Exhibits New EtherCAT + IO-Link Master Protocol Stack Solution

HSINCHU, Taiwan – Aug. 14th, 2019 – ASIX Electronics Corp. (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 3169:Taiwan) is going to exhibit its new EtherCAT + IO-Link Master protocol stack solution, PCIe to TSN solution and the latest AX58100 EtherCAT slave reference designs at Taipei International Industrial Automation Exhibition (TIIAE) 2019.


ASIX Electronics exhibits an easy-design AX58100 EtherCAT slave motor control reference design solution based on STMicroelectronics X-CUBE-MCSDK motor control software development kit. ASIX also presents the other solution vendors’ AX58100 development kits to provide clients more solutions to implement AX58100 on the target EtherCAT slave applications quickly.


Response to the rapidly growing Industry 4.0 smart manufacturing market demand, ASIX Electronics exhibits its new AX58100 3rd party MCU EtherCAT slave reference design with ASIX own IO-Link master protocol stack solution. The ASIX IO-Link master protocol stack is developed based on the international point-to-point network communication standard (IEC 61131-9) for IO-Link smart sensors and actuators. This reference design provides a cost-efficient solution to reduce overall costs, standardized and reduced wiring, increased data availability, remote configuration and monitoring, simple device replacement, and advanced diagnostics.
