Socionext Introduces Time-Sensitive Network (TSN) IP for the Advancement of Smart Manufacturing

Enabling Synchronization and Precision Timing in Factory Automation

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 13, 2020 — (PRNewswire) —  Socionext has developed a Time-Sensitive Network (TSN) IP for FPGA and ASIC implementation. The IP, which provides true deterministic Ethernet for industrial applications, is compliant with the next-generation Ethernet TSN (communication standard IEEE 802.1 Subset) and its evaluation environment. Socionext has been providing leading-edge, high-speed network SoCs for more than 30 years, and the new TSN IP was designed based on such expertise to deliver superior performance for time-sensitive applications. 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 lowering latency. TSN also contributes to the realization of smart factories, as it seamlessly connects and interoperates networks for IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operational Technology).

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.

The new TSN IP will be showcased at this year's " Embedded World" (Hall 3A, Booth 129), the leading international fair for Embedded Systems to be held in Nuremberg, Germany from 25-27 February.
