TMS320F28377D: TMS320F28335 with EtherCAT

Part Number: TMS320F28377D
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: CONTROLSUITE

Hi,

Here i found out this document "TIDM-DELFINO-ETHERCAT reference design | TI.com" This reference design demonstrates how to connect a C2000 Delfino MCU to an EtherCATTm ET1100 slave controller. 

May i know is this reference design (*tidubq6a.pdf) applicable for connect Delfino TMS320F2833x with the FB1111 (something like the EtherCAT booster pack)?

If modification is required for making it done, then which part of software or hardware need to be modified?

  • Hi,

    Here i found out this document "TIDM-DELFINO-ETHERCAT reference design | TI.com"

    This reference design is for a newer Gen3 C2000 device (F2837x). The F2833x is an older Gen2 device, so there will be some differences in the IPs and features. If you use the SPI interface method some of the software / reference may be reusable. EMIF is not available on F2833x however (XINTF instead).

    If modification is required for making it done, then which part of software or hardware need to be modified?

    I'm not sure of all the modifications needed, you will need to analyze this. I have not tried it, but generating the Beckhoff ECAT software stack for F2833x may be difficult.

  • Hi.

    May i know where can i download the SSCToolC28xPatch, the EtherCAT SSC configuration xml file for generate the ESI file?

    I have followed the instructions and search it in ControlSuite (controlSUITE_3.4.9) but i still cnt look for the SSCToolC28xPatch folder.

    Hope to hear you soon.

    Thx.

  • Hi,

    You need to download the standalone version of https://www.ti.com/tool/CONTROLSUITE and then run the .exe below:

  • Hi, i have got the patch doc. here i have another question related with the SSC tool required.

    I notice that SSC v5.11 is required for the for the ESI file generation process but the oldest version i could get from ETG website now is SSC v5.12 (see attached photo).

    Hopefully you could provide me any link that could let me download the SSC v.5.11 or please provide any supporting advice to overcome this technical issue.

    Hope to hear you soon. Thx.

  • Hi,

    I think you will need to reach out to Beckhoff to find this version. They list the email support@beckhoff.com for support on their website.
