The EtherCAT Piggyback controller board FB1130 combines a Xilinx FPGA, two EtherCAT ports and a PDI-Connector on a printed circuit board. Target applications for this Piggyback controller board are IP Core based EtherCAT devices with non standard process data interfaces (PDI). The board can as well be used for EtherCAT evaluation purposes as assembled in into customer end products.

HESSO Made also an Motherboard for it in order to have more common connectivity and can be more widely used.
