TR8xxx | EtherCAT seminar and workshops for developers

The EtherCAT technology basics for developers seminar is aimed at developers as recommendable preparation before attending one of the mentioned workshops below. In this seminar basic EtherCAT knowledge is conveyed.

The workshops are aimed at developers of EtherCAT slave devices (TR8100) or EtherCAT master devices (TR8200). In addition to theoretical content these workshops also include practical exercises. It is assumed that workshop participants have access to an EL9820 evaluation kit (slave workshop) or the ET9200 Master Sample Code (master workshop). Basic EtherCAT knowledge is assumed. The workshops are held by developers in manageable groups so that individual interests can be addressed.
