Industrial Ethernet is still a key communication technology for factory control. It is built on the long legacy of Ethernet, but adds significant capabilities for increasing robustness and reliability. This course will provide an overview of the key differences between our familiar Ethernet protocol and the Industrial version. A hands on example will use easily available software and development boards to dig into some of the key details of an actual Industrial Ethernet implementation. Students can optionally obtain the hardware and software to follow along with the implementation.
