Block Diagram

Solution Type: IP Core, Qsys Component

End Market: Industrial

Evaluation Method: OpenCore Plus

Technology: Interface Protocols: Communications

Cyclone Series: Cyclone® V, Cyclone® V SoC


The FPGA IP core supports or can be used as MECHATROLINK-III C1 Master, Slave and Multi-slave functions. The basic function of the FPGA IP core is equivalent JL-100 and JL-102 communication chip from Yaskawa. Since the logic circuit on FPGA is programmable, you can add or customize different type of interface and you can incorporate other peripheral circuit to the user interface of the FPGA IP core. This will make your product development faster, flexible and customizable.


  • Supports MECHATROLINK-Ⅲ C1 Master, Slave and Multi-Slave.

Device Utilization and Performance

Note that this is just a reference value since it varies dependent on options at the time of synthesis and implementation environment. -\tThe value is from a standalone SYM3A-M. It does not include sample interfaces and other circuits. -\tIt is the fitting result of Cyclone® V 5CSTFD6D5F31I7 (Sodia evaluation board with FPGA) Logic(ALMs):8,483 RAM Blocks:62 PLL:1
