Powerlink on Intel Ethernet Controller I210 (Apr 2013)
24 April 2013 – POWERLINK masters can achieve very high performance at a lower cost point than ever with the Intel Ethernet Controller I210. Eliminating the requirement for proprietary network controllers allows a typical low-cost Industrial PC to be used as a POWERLINK master for systems implementing motion control or high-speed drives. Industrial PCs based on Intel® processors take advantage of continuing advances in performance and energy efficiency while also benefiting from the broad ecosystem of development tools available for Intel® architecture-based systems.
