Excelfore’s New Time Aware Shaper to Ethernet TSN Meets Demands for In-Vehicle Networks

February 8, 2019 Laura Dolan

Fremont, CA. Excelfore releases a working Time Aware Shaper (TAS) for Ethernet TSN networks, helping to meet the demands of in-vehicle infotainment, control and safety systems.

The TAS provides a circuit-switched/Time-Division-Multiplexed (TDM) channel into the otherwise packet-based Ethernet network, allowing a specific time period for the delivery of automotive control systems.

The new TAS is available for Linux, QNX, Integrity and Android operating systems, in addition to a variety of smaller RTOSs. It is currently operating in cameras, video displays, head units, ECUs, and network gateways that connect to CAN, LIN, and other popular automotive busses.

Excelfore will showcase the Time Aware Shaper at the Automotive Ethernet Congress, February 13-14 in Munich, Germany. Shrikant Acharya, Excelfore’s CTO, will be present a seminar titled, "Implementation of a TSN Time Aware Shaper," on February 14 at noon.

"Excelfore has consistently played a leading role in Ethernet AVB/TSN implementations,” said Acharya. “Last year we presented the first working demonstration of IEEE 802.1ASrev grand master clock redundancy. In 2016 our AVB protocol stack was the first to be certified by the Avnu Alliance for both the talker and listener functions."
