The ECUcore-EP3C System on Module (SOM) is an extremely compact hardware and software solution that accelerates embedded Ethernet POWERLINK designs. With the ECUcore- EP3C SYS TEC electronic extends the flexibility of existing SOM solutions to the silicon layer.

With using an FPGA instead of a fixed microcontroller the functionality of the core and the corresponding board layout is now “reprogrammable” by the developer. The board provides up to 31 pins to implement custom functions such as DIO, PWM, SPI bus or Data Address Bus.
