Socionext introduces TSN IP to support smart factories

Socionext has developed a Time-Sensitive Network (TSN) IP for FPGA and ASIC implementation.

The IP, which has been developed to provide true deterministic Ethernet for industrial applications, is compliant with the next-generation Ethernet TSN (communication standard IEEE 802.1 Subset) and its evaluation environment.

Features include support for a 2-port daisy chain topology suitable for connecting industrial equipment, 1 Gbps high-speed operation, low latency less than 400 ns, and low jitter less than 0.1 µs.

The IP enables a range of industrial applications such as motion controllers, which require faster response control as well as TSN support, and remote I/O, often used in network communications to enable control of secured bandwidth and low latency. TSN also seamlessly connects and interoperates networks for IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operational Technology) making it suitable in supporting the development of smart factories.

Socionext will provide an FPGA evaluation board and start-up manual for IP implementation, as well as Linux open-source driver software. This allows users to quickly evaluate and develop industrial applications equipped with TSN.

Socionext, with its extensive experience in developing devices for industrial applications, will also ensure a seamless transition from FPGA to ASIC and help customers develop their own custom ASICs for optimum functionalities and performance with the IP.
