The new module is a tiny but powerful embedded single-chip PROFINET IO interface, which is certified by the PROFIBUS user organization. It is the latest member of HMS´s Anybus-IC family, which includes interchangeable solutions for PROFIBUS, CANopen, DeviceNet, Ethernet/IP and Modbus-TCP.  

In a single housing of only 9 cm X 9 cm in size, the Anybus-IC contains a powerful microprocessor with integrated fast Ethernet controller and a full-featured PROFINET IO device software stack. The new IC reduces the development efforts needed to design a PROFINET IO interface by up to 70 percent.

The Anybus-IC has a 32-pin dual in-line housing and requires only a single 5 V power supply. It functions as a standard IO device and supports PROFINET conformance class A. Up to 144 bytes of input data and 144 bytes of output data are permitted. The Anybus-IC contains all hardware and software necessary for any automation device to communicate over a PROFINET network, only the PHY and the RJ45 Ethernet connector has to be added.
