An open-source POWERLINK protocol stack
Ethernet POWERLINK is a Real-Time Ethernet field bus system. It is based on the Fast Ethernet Standard IEEE 802.3.
openPOWERLINK is an Open Source Industrial Ethernet stack implementing the POWERLINK protocol for Managing Node (MN, POWERLINK Master) and Controlled Node (CN, POWERLINK Slave). It implements all important features required by modern POWERLINK devices such as Standard, Multiplexed and PollResponse Chaining mode of operation, dynamic and static PDO mapping, SDO via ASnd and SDO via UDP, as well as asynchronous communication via a Virtual Ethernet interface. openPOWERLINK is licensed under the BSD license.
openPOWERLINK is open-source software (OSS) and is licensed under the BSD license. Some target platform specific parts of the stack are licensed under other licenses such as, without limitation, the GNU General Public License Version 2.
