New Technology for Device-Level Ethernet Guarantees Reliable, Real-Time Performance Under All Network Traffic Conditions

New Technology for Device-Level Ethernet Guarantees Reliable, Real-Time Performance Under All Network Traffic Conditions
Innovasic Semiconductor announces PriorityChannel, a new technology for device-level Ethernet that is designed to ensure real-time Industrial Ethernet messages are always processed on-time, every time regardless of the amount or type of other network traffic. Factory automation systems are now being deployed with Industrial Ethernet connectivity instead of traditional serial fieldbuses. Although Industrial Ethernet brings many advantages in terms of network management, compatibility and flexibility, it is well known that Ethernet is inherently non-deterministic. As the application of Industrial Ethernet grows, it is becoming apparent that conventional solutions have difficulty dealing with critical messages when network traffic increases, resulting in unpredictable packet delays, excessive latency, or even connection failure.
