Early-Access Technology for Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)

We’ve built a new pair of cRIO controllers and teamed up with Cisco to enable creation of distributed systems that perform synchronized I/O, code execution, and deterministic communication, all using the latest additions to standard Ethernet. Together those controllers create technology engineers are already using to help vet the technology in ecosystem activities, including the Industrial Internet Consortium TSN Testbed for smart manufacturing.


The tech specs
The technology includes new CompactRIO controllers featuring Intel Atom processors and the Intel i210 TSN-enabled NIC for a high performance control system. These controllers use LabVIEW system design software to maintain synchronized time to the network and expose that time to code running on the real-time processor, as well as the code running on the FPGA.

LabVIEW’s already designed with time as a core concept using structures such as timed loops and single-cycle timed loops.  Now these structures are synchronized to network time which makes it simple for users to tightly coordinate signal processing, control algorithms, and I/O timing with scheduled network transmission and between multiple systems distributed across a network.  Additionally now with TSN these systems can deterministically send data across standard Ethernet networks to create reliable multi-controller coordinated systems.  


How to get early access
To get early access to these new controllers you can:

  1. Join our Time Sensitive Networks on our online Community, where you’ll find example code and documentation, along with more detailed info on hardware and software capabilities, and details on the appropriate products/accessories you need to create deployable TSN systems. 
  2. Sign up for the early access program! We’ll review your submission and follow up when the controllers are ready to ship.

Wait… what’s TSN, again?

Time-sensitive networking (TSN) enables the creation of distributed, synchronized, hard real-time systems over standard Ethernet. These systems use the same infrastructure to provide real-time control and communicate all standard IT data, powering convergence of control, measurement, configuration, UI and file exchange infrastructure. TSN’s expected to fundamentally change system design and maintenance by offering network convergence, secure control traffic and high performance!
