Introducing TSN Starter Package

The TSN Starter Package includes everything needed to build, configure and evaluate TSN networks. It contains an Evaluation Board that can be used to implement bespoke configurations of Edge IP Solution on FPGA. The board can also be used as a 4+1 port switch to build TSN networks that are configurable using Slate XNS software. Further devices (from any TSN standards compliant vendor) can be added to this network and configured by Slate XNS.

  • Evaluation Board (4-port stand-alone switch board)
  • Edge IP Solution (2+1/4+1 port TSN IP Solution)
  • Reference Design (precompiled Edge IP Solution image to enable as 4+1 port TSN switch)
  • Slate XNS (TSN network configuration software with GUI)

TSN Starter Package Options

The TSN Starter Package is offered in three variants, designed to suit every evaluation project. Longer term projects can benefit from permanent licenses for the Edge IP Solution reference design and Slate XNS configuration software, enabling continued use of the Evaluation Boards as switches in TSN test networks.
