Industrial Network Device Supports CC-Link IE Time Sensitive Networking (TSN)

March 18, 2020
The R-IN32M4-CL3 IC for industrial Ethernet (IE) communication from Renesas Electronics satisfies the specifications of less than one µs synchronization accuracy between applications.

This accelerates time-sensitive networking (TSN) support for applications such as AC servos, actuators, and vision sensors that demand high-speed responsive control, as well as remote I/O widely used in network communication. As a result, users are able to implement ultra high-speed and high-precision motion control. Furthermore, TSN enables seamlessly linked interoperation between information technology (IT) networks and operational technology (OT) networks, allowing product models or production volumes to be changed in real time, while also providing flexible support for the manufacture of multiple product types in varying quantities and boosts factory productivity overall. In addition to driver software, the company will provide the TCP/IP protocol software, CC-Link IE TSN protocol software, and CC-Link IE Field protocol software essential to developers. An evaluation board and start-up manual are also available.
