port makes sure that things are moving - Universal Communication Platform

port GmbH is already known as supplier of technology for communication software and in electric drives. Now another customer is trusting on the company's competence in a extensive project.


To be flexibly as possible, at different communication protocols mapped with a broadly common hardware, the manufacturer of motion controllers and drives decided to the FPGA-based solution »Port Unified Data Interface« (PUDIN) from port. Whether EtherCAT, CANopen or POWERLINK: Only one basic hardware with a FPGA as the core represents a unified hardware and software interface via a DP-RAM. This universal communication module abstracts the specifics of each bus protocol, so the customer can concentrate fully on its core competencies in the control of motors. The unified API PUDIN takes care of the rest.
The benefits again at a glance:


  • One piece of hardware - different protocols

  • One interface for all protocols
    -- You focus on your core competence

  • Supports EtherCAT, Powerlink and CANopen
    (further protocols on request)

  • FPGA solution available for Altera and Xilinx

port supports the customer in project planning, system design and selection of appropriate hardware and accompanied him in the project through to certification. You too can trust our project experience - talk to us!
