Etude Comparative EtherCAT vs Bus Capteurs

Abstract : ZODIAC DATA SYSTEMS develop a new fieldbus who can be used to cover the new telemetry requirements in the upper stage of launcher. They want to create a fieldbus implementing a digital communication link and a power distribution scheme on the same cabling infrastructure. The sensor bus system has some resemblances with a protocol called EtherCAT. Then the aim of the project is to compare the both systems. The mission comprises of two main parts: The first part is a comparative study. The aim of this part is to compare the performance, the simplicity of implementation, the reliability and the complexity of elements of both systems. Once the best features chosen, another study must be made on the impacts which they could have on the sensor bus system architecture. The second part is a comparative study of 3 synchronization protocols. The first is the protocol used in the sensor bus system, the second is the Distributed Clock protocol used in EtherCAT and the third is the precision time protocol of the IEEE standard.
