Latency comparison between Cut-Through and Store-and-Forward FPGA implemented switching IP

In this article a comparison in latencies of two COTS IEC 62439-3 switch IP cores implementable on FPGAs is shown. The first one, combines Cut-Through with Store-and-Forward switching architectures, and the second one is based only on Store-and-Forward switching technique. Reliable Ethernet Networks – HSR & PRP Reliable Ethernet Networks are gaining acceptance for many Industrial Automation applications. One illustrative example of this evolution, is the adoption by the International Electrotechnical Commission of the High-availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR) Ethernet based…

Testing & Verifying complex FPGA designs – Part I

Simulation & Verification are fundamental in the process of developing any good quality FPGA-based RTL codification. These are key steps within SoC-e’s designing procedures, and in this article, we are going to provide more insights about them in our Networking IP Core portfolio. The whole process is divided in the following high-level steps: Entity/Block-oriented simulation: Simulation at entity/block-level for the different modules that compose each IP Core, by generating stimulus on each input signal and verifying that the RTL code…

SoC-e in the COMMUTE project

We have recently participated in the Hazitek grant programme! As SoC-e is a company fully committed to R&D, the Basque Government has recently awarded us a grant for the COMMUTE project: design and development of a high-performance, cybersecure, application-oriented and reconfigurable Ethernet communications platform. Ethernet-based communications in the office environment (Information Technologies-IT) are widely known and mature. The global digitalization process that the Industrial, Energy, Transport and Aerospace sectors are undergoing is generating demand for Ethernet solutions for IT and…

Latest TSN standards supported in our TSN Switch IP Core

Our current TSN Switch IP Core is evolving! Apart from the 10G TSN Switch implementation, we remain on the cutting edge of TSN standards. This new post will cover the latest updates of our TSN Switch IP Core, which goes from 802.1Qci support to 802.1AS-2020. IEEE 802.1Qci support 802.1Qci, also known as Per-Stream Filtering and Policing, is a standard that specifies the procedures for frame filtering policing and selection based on the particular data stream to which the frame belongs.…

2021: See you next year! – SoCe

What a year we’ve had! It has certainly been a year to remember at SoC-e. The task of summarising in a few lines, no more and no less than 365 days of hard work, achievements and evolution, seems complicated. A different year Last year started with the COVID19, we were all scared and didn’t know what was going to happen. It hasn’t been solved yet, but it seems to be getting better. On top of that, the silicon situation is…

SoC-e in the IMOCO4.E Project

The IMOCO4.E challenge is to bridge the gap between the latest research results and best industrial practice in digital twins, AI and advanced mechatronic motion control systems. IMOCO4.E strive to create solid and unimpeachable knowledge for optimizing machines and production lines over their whole lifecycle. Software and Hardware building blocks and edge-to-cloud standardized interfaces, will be developed to deliver a complete IMOCO4.E reference framework. The project will deliver a flexible, scalable, future-proofed and fully functional product architecture to be exploited…

CONTROLES S.A. delivers 60 Control Units that integrate SoC-e’s PRP and PTP solution.

In October, CONTROLES S.A. has won a UTE bidding process, delivering 60 Control Units (CU), model RTU194 and the corresponding boards for their assembly in the substations to UTE Transmission. With this supply, UTE Trasmission has already purchased 720 units. CONTROLES S.A. is dedicated to design, manufacturing and sale of electronic products and software for the elevator industry, remote control of electrical power distribution networks and SCADA systems. Regarding this Bay Controller, which is called RTU194, the most remarkable aspects…

SoC-e in the International Astronautical Congress – IAC 2021

What is the International Astronautical Congress (IAC)? The IAC is the place and time of the year where all the world’s space community comes together. It covers all space sectors and topics and provides everyone with the latest developments in space, academia and industry. For the very first time, the IAC will open its doors to the global space community in the United Arab Emirates, the first Arab country to host the IAC since its establishment in 1950. The congress…
