    When you purchase an AX58100 from ASIX Corp., the EtherCAT license is embedded in the chip. For AX58100's products there is no additional EtherCAT license fee.

  • What is different AX58100 PDI SPI and Function SPI

    AX58100 provides two SPI slave interface, share SCLK, MOSI, MISO pins and individual chip select SCS_ESC and SCS_FUNC, that is support PDI and AX58100 specific function register and memory access.

  • Why & How to do Ethercat conformance test?

    It is important to make sure the Ethercat devices from the different manufactor can co-work together in one Ethercat network, so ETG provide the Ethercat Conformance Test Tool (CTT) for the manufactor to do conformance test, it is mandatory for the manufactor to test their Ethercat products with the CTT.

  • How to program the AX58100's eeprom?

    the AX58100's eeprom data is included in the related ESI file, segment, the user can download the eeprom data into the AX58100 by using the Twincat through the Ethercat network.

  • How to choose external PHY for AX58100 port 2?

    Please refer to Ethercat PHY Selection Guide for selection, please note the PHY must with TX_CLK fixed phase ability.

  • How do I connect AX58100 to MCU?

    There are SPI Slave and Local Bus interface for configuring to connect MCU.
