How to Develop High Reliability Ethernet Control Systems Using Media Redundancy – 8400498
Extending Ethernet Redundancy Schemes All the Way Down to the I/O Ethernet was never designed for the plant floor industrial environment. It was designed for office systems and the environment of the enterprise business systems. In the business systems environment, making sure that the network has ultra high availability at all times is not necessary….
How to Remotely Access Ethernet I/O Over the Internet – 8400517
This white paper details the steps needed to access your I/O module remotely over the internet. This can be done with Ethernet-enabled I/O modules that have the capability to display built-in webpage-based output monitoring. In other words, if your I/O module can serve a webpage over Ethernet, and the network it is connected to has…
How to Connect to an Ethernet Device for Communication – 8501122-8501116
How to Connect to an Ethernet Device for Communication Acromag manufactures Ethernet-enabled devices that monitor and isolate voltage, current, thermocouple, and RTD signals, as well as control analog and digital outputs, and can transmit I/O information over Ethernet and on the internet. However, the complexities of Ethernet communication can make connecting to these devices difficult….
Introduction to VPX Technology – 8500906
VITA 46, 48, and 65: The Next Generation VME System Replacement VPX (also known as VITA 46) is the next generation of ruggedized compact embedded systems. After years of VME systems dominating the military/aerospace field, users have finally reached the limit of available bandwidth on the VMEbus. VPX expands the possible bandwidth, compared to the…

Benefits of FPGA Modules Derived from their Speed and Flexibility – You Can’t Do More for Less Learn about FPGA-based system design for embedded computing I/O signal processing applications. This white paper discusses how Advanced Xilinx Virtex and Altera Stratix FPGAs make use of multiple digital clock managers and simultaneous parallel execution to rapidly compute…
How to use Ethernet in the Embedded Space – 8400756
A Primer on Ethernet Concepts from Determinism to TCP Offload Engines for High-Speed Data Processing This paper discusses embedded computing implementations of gigabit and 10-gigabit Ethernet. Silicon (hardware) stack and software stack approaches to lower communication overhead, reduce latency, and improve determinism are compared.
Will Acromag’s VPX Carrier Work in My System? – 8500907
Checking VPX Compatibility in 7 Simple Steps With the advent of the multiple new high speed serial bus protocols, the VPX standard is wrought with variations and deviations that complicate compatibility of boards within the system. This guide attempts to simplify this process. Before continuing with this guide, Acromag recommends that you read our White…
