LS1021A TSN Reference Design Solution





The demo showcases key features of the LS1021A TSN Reference Design Solution including:

  • Deterministic Ethernet for critical control traffic
  • Converge IT and OT networks
  • Open Industrial Linux SDK
  • Flexible IO for IoT applications

As industrial OEMs design solutions for Industry 4.0, they must converge the operational technology (OT) domain with their information technology (IT) infrastructure. Current technologies in the OT domain are often limited to 10-100 Mbps, and do not have the bandwidth to support new technologies that are being applied to manufacturing, such as high-definition video.  Time-sensitive networking supports legacy IT equipment and OT equipment on the same network, enabling Gigabit bandwidth while simplifying network deployment and management. TSN represents the next step in the evolution of Ethernet as a ubiquitous networking technology and TSN-enabled Ethernet will play an important role in the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industry 4.0 revolution.
