IP Core for Time Sensitive Networking (TSN)

Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) is a set of IEEE standards previously developed by the IEEE Ethernet AVB (Audio Video Bridging) task force. These standards enable the transport of time sensitive data streams through Ethernet networks without special hardware support.  Time-critical data streams can thus be transported with guaranteed latency through a TSN network. The TSN IP Core developed by the Fraunhofer IPMS eases the integration of TSN into devices used in such networks. The IP core consists of three sub-modules:

  • Time synchronization (supports IEEE 802.1 as)
  • Traffic-Shaping (supports IEEE 802.1 Qav and Qbv)
  • Ethernet MAC communication (supports IEEE 802.3)
