  • TSN IP Core making devices fit for real-time Ethernet

    Press Release / November 19, 2018

    Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is a set of standards allowing for the timed and prioritized transmission of real-time critical messages over standard Ethernet hardware. With the TSN IP Core, developers at Fraunhofer IPMS provide equipment manufacturers and operators the opportunity to make their devices fit for new TSN standards. Fraunhofer IPMS will be presenting the possibilities of the TSN IP Core to members of the specialist public in Hall 7a, Booth 246 at this year's SPS IPC Drives event from 27-29 November in Nuremberg.

  • No Industry 4.0 without RFID and Sensors

    Press Release / April 10, 2018

    Cost reductions resulting from transparent supply chains, workpiece-controlled production lines or preventive maintenance measures would not be possible without the interaction of identification methods, sensors, software, and secure data storage concepts. Fraunhofer IPMS will demonstrate a system made up of various wireless RFID sensors, specially-developed RFID OPC UA middleware and a tamper-proof data storage concept based on blockchain technology at this year's Hannover Messe. Visitors to the world's largest trade show for industrial technology can view the Fraunhofer IPMS system demonstration at the OPC Foundation booth from 23-27 April.
