Connect it! – PROFINET IRT – TPS-1 solution kit
The TPS-1 Solution Kit is an all-in-the-box evaluation tool for the TPS-1 PROFINET IRT device chip. It includes all required hard- and software for a simple PROFINET IRT network including demonstration programs and it serves as a starting point for your own developments.
The major hardware components of the TPS-1 Solution Kit are the TPS-1 itself, a V850ES/JH3-H CPU as host and a CPLD that holds everything together. The CPLD gives the flexibility to connect alternative CPUs or to operate the TPS-1 in the pure, no-host IO mode with the same board hardware. On the network side the Solution Kit offers standard 100BASE-TX or optional FX connections. On the system side, access to the TPS-1 is possible via its I/Os, via the V850ES and its built-in peripherals or via any other CPU that can be hooked on the starter kit board using the RSK interface. Additionally the Solution Kit is garnished with a multi-purpose LCD display and plenty of connectors and test points. The provided interfaces include UART, USB device, AD/DA and GPIOs that are configurable to alternative IO functions.
Like other Renesas Solution Kits the Y-CONNECT-IT-TPS-1 comes with a large software bundle. The motto for the SW-bundle for this kit is “everything needed for a PROFINET connection”. Consequently the Solution Kit does not only contain a toolchain for the V850, but also the required PROFINET engineering tools.
