Preventing Data Loss in Linux-Based EtherCAT Master

Cheol-Jin An, Hyun-Chul Yi, Hyoung-Woo Kim, Sung-Mun Park, and Joon Young Choi
Abstract—A receiving and sending algorithm is proposed to prevent the packet loss in Linux-based EtherCAT master. The algorithm is implemented by modifying the IgH EtherCAT master stack module, and can be used in the application program for EtherCAT master. The performance of the modified EtherCAT master is verified by experimenting it with the EtherCAT slave hardware provided from Texas Instruments Inc. Experiment results show the improved data throughput as well as the compensation of communication jitter compared to the existing IgH EtherCAT open master stack.

Index Terms—Communication jitter, data receiving and sending algorithm, EtherCAT, packet loss, throughput.
