IEI Launches Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) Solution For Easy AI Deployment - DRPC-240-TGL TSN/TCC Developer Kit

Mar 01, 2023

IEI DRPC TSN/TCC Developer Kit is a compact yet powerful industrial grade embedded system that lets you easily optimize and deploy AI inference at the rugged edge. It is ready-to-use, simple to get started, and is equipped with what you need—11th Gen Intel® Core™ i5 processor, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, and Yocto Project® OS image—to deploy your AI solutions quickly and easily. Moreover, this developer kit makes real-time computing a basic feature in simplifying time-sensitive application design for device manufacturers.

Powered by 11th Gen Intel® Processor

The DRPC TSN/TCC Developer Kit is powered by the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i5 processor for a balance of performance and responsiveness in a low-power platform. The 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor is up to 23% faster in single-thread performance and up to 19% faster in multi-thread performance than its prior generation for smoother handling of intensive computing tasks.
The processor is optimized for real-time featuring Intel® Time Coordinated Computing (Intel® TCC) and can also be paired with Intel Ethernet controller i225/i226 Series with TSN.
With the new Intel® Iris® Xe graphics architecture, the GPU is integrated with 80EUs and gains 2.95x the graphics performance over the 8th generation Intel® Core™ processors.

Ready-to-Run, Hard Real-Time Computing with Intel® TCC and TSN Support

Hard real-time is necessary in areas such as robotics, automotive, and utilities where a capability fails if it cannot be executed within the allotted time span. To achieve the stringent real-time computing requirements, the DRPC TSN/TCC Developer Kit supports both Intel® Time Coordinated Computing (Intel® TCC) and Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) to assure accurate and stable delay time for critical real-time data across the network.

TSN and Intel® TCC are two complementary technologies for real-time communication over IP. TSN defines a set of standards for how time sensitive data is transmitted over Ethernet networks. Intel® TCC reduces jitter and improves performance for latency sensitive applications.
