Industrial Protocols

Introduction

The Industrial Protocols module enables real-time industrial communications for TI processors. It contains optimized protocol specific PRU-ICSS firmware, a corresponding FW HAL(Firmware and Hardware Abstraction Layer) library and example applications. The PRU-ICSS firmware runs on the PRU cores, offloading the time-critical link layer processing from the main ARM processor, running FreeRTOS. The FW HAL provides simple access to the PRU-ICSS resources and integrates easily with the protocol stack and application software running on the ARM core. The examples further illustrate how to integrate low-level firmware with the protocol stack and application software.

It consists of below sub-modules
