Renesas R-IN32M3 Industrial Ethernet Module

Ready-to-use industrial Ethernet module includes certified hardware and software

Renesas’ R-IN32M3 Industrial Ethernet Module is a newly-introduced complete, ready-to-use module for use in industrial applications which is based on its R-IN32M3 multi-protocol communication IC.

Both the module hardware and the Ethernet protocol software which Renesas supplies are certified for compliance with the Ethernet standard for interoperability. This dramatically reduces the total cost of ownership as well as lifting barriers to the use of new network technology in industrial equipment.

The R-IN32M3 module supports multiple real-time data networking protocols including PROFINET RT, EtherNet/IP™ and EtherCAT®. It includes Ethernet ports supporting data transfers at rates of 10Mbits/s or 100Mbits/s with auto-negotiation. It also features a two-port Ethernet switch for bus and ring network topologies.

Control and configuration are provided via a high-speed serial peripheral interface and power pins to connect the module to a host processor.
