This demo has been discontinued. If you wish to evaluate our HSR/PRP Switch solution, you may still do this using SoC-e Bricks, such as:

This Lounge is the support site for Avnet’s MicroZed™ Industry 4.0 Ethernet Kit (I4EK) HSR/PRP users.

Avnet I4EK HSR/PRP demo is based on Avnet’s MicroZed Industry 4.0 Ethernet Kit (I4EK), which is an evaluation board that demonstrates multi-protocol Industrial Ethernet in the Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoC.


This demo allows the user to evaluate SoCe HSR-PRP Switch IP Core that implements a DAN (Dual Attached Node) topology supporting HSR and PRP v3 Redundant Ethernet protocols (IEC 62439 clause 5 and 4). These protocols ensure high availability for the networking on critical infrastructures offering zero-delay recovering time and no frame lost in case of a network failure.

All the demo files can be downloaded from the link below. However, you will need to request the user & password to SoC-e (just send an email to and we will provide it).
