Introducing TSN Starter Package

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

  • B&R 0ACST052.1 switch (4 TSN + 1 Ethernet port switch)
  • Evaluation Board (4+1 port TSN switch or switched endpoint)
  • 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 two variants: one for the evaluation of TSN and one for the fast development of own TSN devices based on our Edge IP Solution.
