Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs) are widely used in many applications that require physical inputs and outputs. A CPS usually combines a set of hardware-software components to achieve optimal application execution in terms of performance and energy consumption. An important ability and requirement of CPSs is to be scalable through modularity, making them cost effective and providing enough computational power for the assigned tasks.This thesis is the result of our efforts to design and implement a cost-effective yet efficient Network Interface (NI) for the AXIOM CPS board and system to achieve said modularity. The NI has to achieve high throughput, with remote access to the memory, and several different transfer types to accommodate the project's needs. It also has to be cost effective, with the minimum possible usage of the board's available resources and follow certain guidelines for easy connectivity.
