AVB Endpoint Simulation

Task:

The development of an AVB endpoint simulation to display specific AVB behavior, to emulate specific error patterns, and to verify the timing behavior. The AVB endpoint simulation can be used to validate switch semiconductors and switch ECUs, for example, in order to exactly measure the precision of time synchronization.

Result:

Product Description:
  • Supported protocols:
    • IEEE 802.1AS (gPTP)
    • IEEE 802.1Qat (MRP/MSRP/MVRP)
    • IEEE 802.1Qav (FQTSS)
    • IEEE 1722 (AVTP und MAAP)
    • IEEE 1722.1 (AVDECC)
  • Additional functions:
    • 100BASE-TX or optional 100BASE-T1 (BroadR-Reach) connection
    • Simulation of automotive AVB equipment operation with induced error-behavior
    • Simulation of 1- or 2-step clock behavior
    • Support of BMCA and static gPTP Grandmaster/gPTP Slave
    • Configurable protocol parameters
    • Time stamp logging for master and slave operation
    • Output of PPS signals and adjustable trigger signals
