Using Jetson Xavier NX as an EtherCAT master

Hi there, I’m studying the feasibility of using a Jetson Xavier NX as an EtherCAT MASTER in a robotics application. I see not much information on the topic, but my plan is to use SOEM libraries, given the fact they run on Lynux. I’m aware that the OS is not real-time, but this is not must for the application. Hardwarewise, as far as I know a completely normal 100-base T or superior Ethernet physical layer should do but, otherwise, connecting an external EtherCAT network card through PCIe is acceptable. Could you confirm that this approach is feasible under the JetPack OS?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry. No experience on this. Maybe other users may share their case.
