May 28, 2020 - port is focusing its activities on the range of semiconductor-independent real time multiprotocol solution. The stacks, resp. Protocol libraries for PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, CANopen, EtherCAT and CC-Link IE TSN have already been combined under the technology roof of the “GOAL middleware”. Now port has also combined its range of design tools into an Eclipse-based toolchain – with the name “Industrial Communication Creator”. This unifies the former separate tools into one tool.
The Industrial Communication Creator supports customers in the design phase. Due to its handling, this tool works to shorten of the design in phase.
The new Industrial Communication Creator support also the new SoM Modules from port and the new RJ45 Modules from RENESAS.
Customers are now able to integrate and use the Industrial Communication Creator in automated build systems and include the project files into code repositories.
This Industrial Communication Creator can run with the regular GUI but as well as “headless”. For the “headless” mode a small executable without GUI is available, which simply processes the project file with library, creating the corresponding output. This will help to run our Industrial Communication Creator in automated build systems. Further there is an option to create the project file parallel in XML format. This XML-File can be parsed and archived and handled in regular code repositories. The possibilities for importing and exporting object information have been expanded and improved.
