The Infineon XMC4800 EtherCAT Relax Kit microcontroller board has two EtherCAT RJ45 connectors.

I'd like to investigate using openSUSE (or SLES) as EtherCAT master.

Two Open Source implementations seem to exist, EtherLab EtherCAT Master for Linux with a 2013 1.5.2 release, and Simple Open EtherCAT Master with a 2015 v1.3.1 release but a weird contribution agreement despite GPL.

Another suggestion was writing a userspace daemon that sends appropriate packets - that will require obtaining suitable documentation of packet payload format though.

Looking for mad skills in:

networking
