IEC61850Li® - Lite Implementation
The long wait for a lite implementation of IEC 61850 is over:
IEC 61850 Lite Implementation:
IEC61850@CHIP Development/ Kit (Starter Kit) available for special price until 2010-05-21!
Get Smart Quick with the IEC 61850 Lite implementation. One interesting product is the IPC@Chip® with IEC 61850 Client, Server, GOOSE publisher and subscriber on the Chip in addition to IEC 61131-3 (PLC programming), C/C++ programming, ...
The following overview shows the three companies that build a strong support IEC 61850 for all application domains: for all utility automation systems including Smart Grids.
Revealing the Chip at the DistribuTech 2010, Tampa (Florida).

Some history on Ethernet, MMS, and Fieldbusses for Automation:
In September 2000 (!) NettedAutomation was convinced that the future of IEC 61850 is closely linked to lite implementations. See UCA in-a-LINUX-box. It took another 10 years before it arrived. By the way, it took some 35 years before TCP/IP was used in large scales in automation, 30 years for Ethernet, and 25 years for MMS.
Read a paper published by Karlheinz Schwarz in November 1991 on the Use of Ethernet instead of Token passing in the MAP 3.0 specification [PDF, 720 KB] - at that time the author did not know about Gigabit Ethernet;
