Introduction to TSN in the factory automation space, an overview of factory automation end equipment, and TI solutions to meet the needs of factory automation.
Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) is a collection of standard extensions to the well-established IEEE 802.1 that is designed and envisioned to solve known issues with Ethernet communication in industrial applications, especially those related to determinism and time synchronization. It has been widely accepted by industrial customers. However, the exact use cases and application profiles still differ, requiring flexible solutions and a new generation of ICSS and system integration into TI embedded processors combined with interface devices and power management. This training series provides an introduction to TSN in the factory automation space, an overview of factory automation end equipment, and TI solutions to meet the needs of factory automation operations.
