HSINCHU, Taiwan – Jul. 18th, 2023 – Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) technology is a series of IEEE 802.1 standards established by the IEEE TSN Task Group based on the second layer of the OSI seven-layer model. TSN technology enables standard Ethernet networks to meet the real-time data transmission requirements of industrial communication networks, such as hard real-time, determinism, and low latency. The Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture (OPC UA) technology is a cross-platform machine-to-machine industrial communication protocol standard established by the OPC Foundation based on the application layer of the OSI seven-layer model, providing a common language for communication between different industrial automation machines. The combination of TSN technology and OPC UA communication protocol technology provides the key technology for realizing Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the Industrial Internet, and is expected to become the rising star of the next generation industrial communication technology.
ASIX Electronics Corporation, a leading IC design company for Industrial/Embedded networking and connectivity solutions, and Avalue Technology Incorporation, a leading industrial computer manufacturer, are jointly launching the latest AXM57104 TSN IPC development platform solutions today to shape the future of TSN technology together. The „AXM57104 TSN Development Platform“ introduced by ASIX and the „SLP-WHG-TSN TSN Industrial Computer“ unveiled by Avalue are developed using ASIX’s AXM57104 TSN Gigabit Ethernet PCIe NIC and Avalue’s SLP-WHG fanless industrial computer (IPC), equipped with a high-performance 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and RT-Linux real-time operating system.
The AXM57104 TSN Gigabit Ethernet PCIe NIC supports various advanced TSN functions in compliance with IEEE 802.1 standards, including IEEE 1588V2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP), 802.1AS-Rev/AS timing and synchronization for time-sensitive applications, 802.1Qav time-sensitive stream transmission and queuing, 802.1Qbu frame preemption, 802.1Qbv time-aware shaper, and 802.1CB frame replication and elimination. AXM57104 also supports FPGA hard-core field upgradable via In-Application Programming for TSN standards evolution.
The AXM57104 TSN IPC development platform is suitable for industrial IoT applications required TSN network functionality. AXM57104 offers various TSN utility sample codes, such as AXM57104 Linux network driver, PTP4/RSTP/Netconf applications, TSN feature/Web server configuration tool, TSN over OPC UA demo tool, and FPGA firmware upgrade tool, etc. to expedite the development of AXM57104 TSN applications. Using TSN and OPC UA technologies, designers can seamlessly integrate real-time operational technology (OT) and non-real-time information technology (IT) within a single network, enabling the creation of an efficient and flexible smart factory automation environment.
