SBS GreenSpring Modular I/O features the IP-DeviceNet, a field bus IndustryPack module that implements the DeviceNet protocol stack on an independent processor.

IP-DeviceNet is a CAN interface IndustryPack that features a full intelligent 20 MHz Siemens C167 microcontroller and DeviceNet firmware with 640 KB SRAM and 128 KB of flash memory. IP-DeviceNet is a bus-independent CAN device that can be easily interfaced with other platforms, such as VME, ISA and PCI.

IP-DeviceNet is a single-wide Type II Industry Pack that is Open DeviceNet Vendors Association Release 2.0-compiant for complete CAN compatibility. It provides two dual-ported SRAM banks for the C167, one bank of 128 kilobyte zero wait state for high-speed immediate processing operations, and a second 512 kilobytes, extended, for larger applications.
