Middleware for next-generation factory automation.

Today's factory automation requires faster and more precise motor control, timely and seamless communication over Industrial Ethernet (PROFINET-RT, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, POWERLINK, OPC UA and TSN Time-Sensitive Networking for PROFINET CC-D / CC-LINKIE TSN) of next generation. 
• Dual/Single Arm® Cortex®-R52 CPU core (max operating frequency at 800MHz)
• Large tightly coupled memory (576 KB) eliminates execution time variability and realizes real-time deterministic responses
• Improves the speed and precision control of AC servos by placing motor control peripherals on a low-latency peripheral connector accessible from the CPU
• Supports EtherCAT®, PROFINET RT/IRT, EtherNet/IP™ and the next generation Ethernet standard TSN
• User-friendly development environment, including Renesas Starter Kit for RZ/T2M
• Extensive software package with RTOS, drivers, middleware and many other application examples

The combination of the GOAL middleware from port and the new generation RENESAS RZ/T2M TSN-enabled family offers a future-proof option to use all previously used real-time protocols and at the same time to retrofit TSN-based protocols such as PROFINET CC -D or CC-LinkIE TSN.

Port's GOAL middleware offers a uniform platform for the quick and easy integration of Industrial Ethernet protocols such as PROFINET RT with MRP, EtherNet/IP inc. DLR, EtherCAT (and more) and in the future PROFINET CC-D TSN and CC-linkIETSN. GOAL also offers an OPC UA extension that standardizes access to machines, devices and other systems in the industrial environment.

Port's GOAL middleware is supported by a powerful tool (ICC - industrial communication creator). Here, too, port offers a uniform tool for parameterization and administration of all GOAL-supported real-time extensions.

Port offers some examples for download, which can be tested on the EVAL platform "Renesas RZ/T2M RSK".

The RZ/T2M microprocessor (MPU) provides high-speed processing and high-precision control, improving real-time performance in factory automation. Equipped with a 3-port Gigabit Ethernet switch, the RZ/T2M can connect to the main industrial Ethernet multi-protocols and TSN in one chip. A functional safety system can be built using only one RZ/T2M MPU and one other MCU to monitor.
