Time-aware Redbox-DAN PCIe NIC
In a market that is undergoing the revolution of new powerful small sized equipment, RELY-SYNC-HSR/PRP-PCIe provides the most demanding networking features to any kind of PC, regardless of its size.
PCI Express (PCIe) is the most extended high-speed serial computer expansion bus. It is the de-facto standard for expansion boards in PC computers and it is gaining acceptance in Industrial PCs and even in SCADA systems.
RELY-SYNC-HSR/PRP-PCIe is a smart pluggable board that comprises in the same device hardware and software resources to implement specialized networking, synchronization and security oriented services.
RELY-SYNC-HSR/PRP-PCIe can be used as a multi-media PCIe Redbox-DAN, operating as an HSR/PRP node of a high-availability network and connecting an Ethernet network segment with an HSR/PRP network.
The device uses dedicated hardware for low latency switching and for implementing high accuracy clock synchronization based on IEEE 1588 standard.
