Welcome to LabVIEW Time Sensitive Networking (TSN)


TSN is a set of features being added to the Ethernet standard. These features will enable measurement and control applications to utilize standard Ethernet while still maintaining the synchronization and deterministic communications needed. The next wave of the standards is just completing and we are releasing products to offer this technology for our customers. We are seeing adoption for two classes of applications.

  1. Those that require synchronization of devices. This is normally to synchronize data acquisition or create coordinated distributed logging.
  2. Those that require distributed control. This normally requires synchronization of control loops on devices as well as deterministic communications between those control loops.

To support this, we have released products with new LabVIEW APIs that over Ethernet synchronize IO, controllers and optionally perform deterministic communications. In this community you can find more details about TSN, learn how to purchase TSN enabled products, download the software, and interact directly with the development teams to get support and to give feedback.
