HMS Industrial Networks Protocol software for IEEE 802.1AS
IXXAT IEEE 802.1AS protocol software comes as ANSI C code (inspired by MISRA-C) and has a modular structure with a clear separation of the media-dependent and media-independent layers. This helps to enable easy porting and fast implementation into various target systems. As a time-aware, slave-only end station, the software is the receiver of time-synchronization information provided by a grandmaster and enables synchronization of local real-time clocks (RTCs). The software supports the Best Master Clock algorithm, which can be optionally disabled. In addition to meeting the requirements of audio/video broadcasting (AVB) and time-sensitive networking (TSN) systems, special needs within automotive systems are supported.
