The Arduino compatible development board to test out your custom EtherCAT prototypes.

The EtherCATduino is designed to be compatible with the Arduino MEGA 2560. It has the same pinout and the same overall form factor. The EtherCATduino features a powerful ARM microcontroller, an EtherCAT interface, micro USB port and a DC input connector.

  • Pin compatible with Arduino MEGA 2560
  • ARM Cortex-M7 microcontroller running at 216MHz
  • LAN9252 EtherCAT slave controller with 2 RJ45 ports
  • Micro USB for programming and power
  • DC input 7-28 V

The EtherCATduino supports a custom-made Arduino library to easily interface with the EtherCAT bus. It directly supports the Beckhoff EtherCAT stack. Both the manual and the Arduino library are available below.
