Hi,

I've just installed the new DAVE 4.1.4, and am looking at starting a project using the EtherCAT core in the XMC4800 (I've already gotten a handful of sample devices, and am currently designing the prototype board for them) - but I can't seem to find anything relating to EtherCAT in DAVE.

I'll admit that I'm new to DAVE, so it may just be because I'm not looking in the correct places - but if it's not yet included, is there any timeframe for when something will be available? - or will I just have to do things manually for now?

Thanks in advance!

A DAVE APP to support the Ethercat configuration tool from Beckhoff is planned to be published by mid of Feb 2016.

Hi Georg,

Thanks for the answer! Any hope of a simple EtherCat (slave) example before that?

Hello Georg and Infineon,
I am too waiting despearately for a sample slave software as I have my hardware ready. February is very late for me. Any pice of working sample would be of great help.
I have the SSC Tool from Beckhoff, but now I need to code the drivers.
