The next-generation Ethernet standard "IEEE 802.1 TSN (Time-Sensitive Networking)" is a protocol for achieving real-time performance. Since the transmitted data can be delivered within the set time according to the priority, it is expected to be used in industrial equipment and in-vehicle networks that require precise control.
In the future, Ethernet, which has a high affinity with IT equipment, will accelerate its influx into automobiles and industrial equipment, and TSN technology will become important in which each equipment cooperates to control in real-time.
Renesas Electronics offers Layer 2 switches and end stations that comply with this next-generation Ethernet TSN standard as IP cores that can be designed into FPGAs and ASICs.
Some customers want to try out new communications standards, but some are worried that it's difficult to build software from scratch and it may take months before they can send and receive data. Also, you may be worried or wondering if you can communicate with a TSN device that you rarely see yet, or if it works according to the TSN standard.
For such a person, please watch this Ethernet TSN conformance test demo video.
This video shows Ethernet TSN Conformance Test using Automotive C1 by Spirent Communications, Inc., the leading global provider of automated test and assurance solutions for networks, cybersecurity, and positioning. All tests did not record due to recording time, but it works fine with more than 100 tests in 4 categories. From this result, Spirent Communications' equipment shows that our IP core conforms to the TSN standard and can communicate with other TSN equipment.
This test has already evaluated the software required for TSN design, such as IEEE.802.AS (Timing and Synchronization). Customers can use the software in this video to start development on your system immediately.
