Kontron showcases TSN starterkit at embedded world 2018

Kontron presents the first marketable, comprehensive Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) extension solution for Fog Computing at embedded world 2018 in Nuremberg. At the core of this starterkit is the Kontron KBox C-102-2 industrial computer with an integrated TSN networking card including software and real time Linux operating system. The TSN specifications guarantee timely, high availability delivery of data packets. The KBox C-series is used for machine control or the visualization and inspection of manufacturing processes. A live demo will be on display at the Kontron booth in hall1, booth 478. The starterkit will be commercially available in early April 2018.

The TSN starterkit's KBox C-102-2 features a high-performance 6th generation Intel Core i5 processor, and Linux operating system with real-time extension. It offers a maintenance-free design without any fans or batteries. This ensures a significantly prolonged lifespan and high system availability. The KBox series' modular structure, based on the standardized COM Express® technology, results in flexible, highly scaleable systems. The KBox C-102-2 also features two PCI slots, one with the pre-installed TSN networking card. With this card, the system provides four additional TSN switched Ethernet ports with 10/100/1000Mbit/s.

The TSN networking card includes an integrated switch for redundant networks with four gigabit Ethernet ports. It meets all specifications of IEEE 802.1, such as timing and time synchronization, traffic scheduling, frame preemption, and stream reservation protocol. Additional functionality can be integrated through software updates in the FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array). With the standard PCI Express network card and the associated network- and switch drivers for Linux, industrial computers can be connected through redundant ring-, line-, daisy-chain-, or star-shaped TSN networks. The TSN network card is especially suited for rough industrial environments and can be run in industrial temperature ranges from -40 to +85 °C. The software tools include application examples to send TSN packets, as well as a network analyzer application, which determines and displays them. In addition, the time synchronization via PTP IEEE 802.1AS can be evaluated by means of a simple software tool and a 1- pps sync output.
