EtherCAT Master Stack
The EC-Master Stack is designed and optimized to run on different embedded (real time) operating systems. Already existing implementations are available e.g. for Windows CE, VxWorks, On Time RTOS-32, QNX, RTX, INtime®, Integrity, Linux, Xenomai, RTEMS, TKernel and Windows®XP/7/8/10. For evaluation purposes a Windows XP non-real-time solution exists: any network adapter card may be used to connect a PC with EtherCAT modules. The EtherCAT master stack can be ported on any other embedded operating systems.
