Trinamic Slave controller IC

The EtherCat-compliant TMC8460 slave controller IC integrates real-time, latency-free I/O peripherals. The controller also incorporates PWM and Step/Dir I/O peripherals that do not require routing through the firmware of an application processor, eliminating latency for applications requiring real-time response. The product also features an integrated smart peripherals block accessible from an MCU or EtherCat master and, in addition to a PWM unit and Step/Dir interface, an SPI master and encoder interface that can be mapped directly to the Process Data Object by the memory manager. This SPI interface enables latency-free read from an ADC or write to a DAC.
