Abstract: Fieldbuses are serial communication networks very used in industrial control applications. They constitute the lower level of the communication networks in a flexible manufacturing system. Nowadays there are a lack of standardization in the area of fieldbuses and it supposes the existence of a lot of proprietary protocols. Thus, the interconnection of equipment from different manufacturers has become very problematic. It implies that a change in equipment supposes a change in the fieldbus too with the consequent economic losses. This paper proposes the implementation of a device using reconfigurable circuits such as FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) that can be used as a communication processor, compatible with different fieldbuses making only little changes in the programming code and in the level and impedance matching circuit (depending on the electrical features of the corresponding fieldbus). Thus, the same hardware can be connected to different fieldbuses. The implementatio n of fieldbus communication processors using FPGAs implies that the interface can be easily adapted to different protocols (improvement in the interconnection between products of different manufacturers) and that the programming code can be easily modified, adding new functionality when it is necessary.
