TSN from an Endpoint’s Perspective – Open Solutions for an Open Standard
Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units (ISW)
TSN, widely accepted as the new industrial communication standard, confronts device manufacturers with the challenge of developing their next generation of products. Due to the lack of experience and reference architectures, the impact of TSN is often ambiguous. The open source initiative AccessTSN focuses on endpoints and provides answers through open solutions.
This presentation gives generic insights regarding device architectures and provides specific solutions from the open source community, serving as a reference. With the goal of giving practical guidelines, discussed aspects include HW/SW, hardware abstraction, switched end points, OS-support, configuration and higher layer protocols.
