Deterministic Ethernet refers to a networked communication technology that uses time scheduling to bring deterministic real-time communication to standard IEEE 802 Ethernet. Deterministic Ethernet operates using a global sense of time and a schedule which is shared between network components.
Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is a set of IEEE 802 Ethernet sub-standards that are defined by the IEEE TSN task group. These standards enable fully deterministic real-time communication over Ethernet. TSN achieves determinism over Ethernet by using a global sense of time and a schedule which is shared between network components. By defining queues based on time, Time-Sensitive Networking ensures a bounded maximum latency for scheduled traffic through switched networks.
Time-Triggered Ethernet is a scalable networking technology that uses time scheduling to deliver deterministic real-time communication over Ethernet. It has been specifically designed for safe and highly available real-time applications, cyber-physical systems and unified networking. It is fully compatible with IEEE 802.3 Ethernet and integrates transparently with Ethernet network components.
TTP® enables reliable distributed computing and networking for modern vehicle systems at lower life-cycle-costs. This open modular control system platform technology supports efficient system reconfiguration, upgrades and growth.
With Deterministic Ethernet, TTTech delivers the guarantees that enable the application of the Internet of Things to hard real-time systems. Deterministic Ethernet products from TTTech are designed with inherent guarantees for safe and secure communication, meeting safety standards such as IEC 61508. This intrinsic guarantee means that even multiple or complex networks can be converged to a single network without compromising safety or security levels. We call this Guarantee of Service for IoT.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) hold a challenge for on-board networks: The amount of data collected throughout any drive is increasing rapidly. Additionally, these data have to be analyzed and merged in order to receive a big picture of the car’s environment. These developments require a high computing capacity that cannot be provided by the usual single ECU solutions. Domain ECUs and Deterministic Ethernet guarantee reliability and reduce complexity within automotive networks.
