Hello Peter,

some days ago I had contact with Peter Widemann from acontis. He told me 
that his company has successfully ported their EtherCAT master software 
stack to RTEMS, currently based on a x86 architecture. So maybe you want 
to contact him directly? I will send you his contact as PM.

For example, if I used  a TI “Sitara” processor specifically an AM4377 would it be possible to hook into the firmware TI provides for the PRU?  The licenses for the slave require a royalty.
