NovTech's NetLeapâ„¢, an Industry 4.0 Multi-Protocol Ethernet Ports Aggregator Platform, allows the development and integration of a variety of Ethernet protocols including PROFINET, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, Ethernet Powerlink, Modbus TCP, SERCOS III and more. This solution is preproduction ready. A total of six 1G/100/10 Ethernet ports are present. Two are connected to the HPS (The ARM* Cortes-A9 core of the Cyclone® V SoC) and four are connected to the FPGA fabric. With its six ports, the NetLeapâ„¢ allows different protocols to reside on the same platform and can be used as a protocol bridge, a switch, or a router. The kit comes with a templated project example that allows the board to boot to Linux and have all six ports work as a standard Ethernet.
