Update of the EK-ERTEC 200P with ERTEC 200P-2 to firmware V4.6 Patch 01

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
A new firmware with bug fixes is provided for the ERTEC 200P Evaluation Kit for the development of a PROFINET device. The Evaluation Kit ERTEC 200P is used for the development of a PROFINET device with ASICs ERTEC 200P and ERTEC 200P-2.

The Patch 01 solves the following issues:

  • increased robustness of the network communication during continuous operation of more than 497 days.
  • fixed SNMP community string authentication problem: Device responds to an SNMP GETNEXT request, even if the community string is not valid. If the community string is set to "publi" instead of "public", this value has been treated as a correct value since it contains a part of the default
  • Read requests from port specific records must be rejected if port submodule is pulled. Fatal error has been replaced with a reject message for this use case.
  • Incorrect content problem of the MIB object lldpLocManAddrIfId, which occurs during the TED Check tests of the PROFINET certification bundle, has been fixed.
  • Incorrect memory allocation causing a fatal error has been fixed. This problem occurs when an MRP_OPC_PRM_INDICATION is requested.
  • Synchronization problem, which occurs in TCP/IP stack due to a counter that is accessed by different tasks without lock/unlock protection, has been fixed. This problem arises under high system load with several TCP/IP connections.
  • This patch handles CM_ERR_PRM_ACCESS_DENIED error during PRM-Write operation and prevents a fatal error.
  • Wrong error occurs in PROFINET certification ART (Automated Real-Time) testcase MRP_CHK1 (Media Redundancy Protocol check test). The fix solves the wrong error hierarchy for PDEV (Physical Device) records.
  • Mbuf (memory buffer) resource leak in Interniche Stack has been fixed. This resource leak occurs if the user application tries to send data to IP Address or Port 0.
  • Incorrect check of PDIRGlobalData.MaxLineRxDelay , which leads to PRM Fault diagnosis, has been fixed.
