IO716: Gigabit Ethernet I/O Module

Automotive Ethernet Physical Layer I/O Module with Simulink® Driver Blocks

The IO716 I/O module provides a single-channel automotive Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T1) physical interface, and is ideal for communicating with automotive Ethernet interfaces such as Electronic Control Units (ECUs). The Ethernet interface supports 1,000 Mbit/s full-duplex transmission rates over a single twisted pair cable.

The module supports the following protocols:

  • Real-time UDP (MATLAB® R2020b and later)
  • TCP/IP (MATLAB® R2020b and later)
  • XCP master for bypassing (MATLAB® R2020b and later)
  • RAW Ethernet (MATLAB® R2022a and later)
  • Modbus TCP (separate Runtime licenses, MATLAB® R2020b and later)
  • OPC UA (separate Runtime licenses, MATLAB® R2020b and later)

The IO716 I/O module is fully compatible with the Simulink® Real-Time™ workflow. The extensive Simulink® Real-Time™ driver blockset offers comprehensive functionality.
