Anybus® CompactCom™ is a range of embedded communication devices that provide connectivity to any industrial network. You can choose your level of integration (Chip, Brick or Module) to the host device and the desired performance level.
The CompactCom Chip is a full network connectivity device on a single chip for integration into your PCB design. The CompactCom Brick is for applications with limited space or where users want to add their own choice of network connectors. The CompactCom Module is a complete and interchangeable communication module gives the fastest time to market.
The CompactCom 40-series, based on the new NP40 network processor, caters mainly for high-performance industrial communication for demanding applications. It supports all major industrial networks but is especially suitable for high-end industrial Ethernet and fieldbus applications. It offers “zero delay” between the device and the network.
You have access to all types of industrial networks —traditional fieldbuses as well as industrial Ethernet — through one single development project. The CompactCom 40-series extends the level of flexibility even further since it uses a reprogrammable CompactCom hardware to support several networks.
