TSN (time-sensitive networking) is a set of evolving IEEE standards that support a mix of deterministic, real-time and best-effort traffic over fast Ethernet connections. The TSN set of standards is bocming increasingly important in many industrial networking sutuations, particularly for IIoT (the Industrial Internet of Things). SoC-e has developed TSN IP that you can instantiate in Xilinx All Programmable devices. (Because the standards are still evolving, implementing the TSN hardware in reprogrammable hardware is a good idea.)

 

In particular, the company offers the MTSN (Multiport TSN Switch IP Core) IP core, which provides precise time synchronization of network nodes using synchronized, distributed local clocks with a reference and IEEE 802.1Qbv for enhanced traffic scheduling. You can currently instantiate the SoC-e core on all of the Xilinx 7 series devices (the Zynq SoC and Spartan-7, Artix-7, Kintex-7, and Virtex-7 FPGAs), Virtex and Kintex UltraScale devices, and all UltraScale+ devices (the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs and Virtex and Kintex UltraScale+ FPGAs).

 

Here’s a short three-and-a-half minute video explaining TSN and the SoC-e MSTN IP:
