TS-PON (Time Sensitive PON), developed by Vulcan Semi, stands at the forefront of optical-based, industrial networking solution. It plays a pivotal role in addressing the communication needs of high-performance AI processors and cutting-edge sensors.
By eliminating limitations and bottlenecks associated with traditional industrial networks, TS-PON presents a groundbreaking connectivity solution characterized by highly scalable bandwidth (starting at 10 Gbps in its first generation), exceptional determinism, ultra-low latency, high reliability, top-tier security, and low power consumption. This empowers the full realization of the potential of Edge AI.
Vulcan Semi offers a range of high-performance Software Defined Networking (SDN) SoCs tailored to diverse needs.
For applications requiring time sensitivity, high determinism, and unwavering reliability, the TS-PON products are the perfect fit. TS-PON is not only suitable for deployment as the network within equipment such as robots or precision CNC machines but also serves as an effective solution to interconnect various pieces of equipment within an OT network in a smart factory environment to enterprise level IT network. In a factory setting, the optical TS-PON network alleviates the common bottlenecks associated with traditional industrial networks. These include challenges such as long-distance connectivity, intricate wiring with multiple levels of switches, space and power concerns, and TCO.
For applications demanding seamless integration with third-party XGSPON/GPON devices, Vulcan provides standard ITU XGSPON/GPON products enhanced with advanced features, catering to both FTTx and POL markets.
Collectively, the family of product offerings serve various industries, including Smart Factory, Robotics, Automotive, FTTx, and the burgeoning F5G sector, all with a slick, common SDN architecture.
TS-PON is an ideal solution for the automotive zonal architecture with central computing. Its high bandwidth, stringent determinism and ultra-low latency ensure precise and real-time performance for critical applications like autonomous driving. The high reliability and robust security features address the paramount safety needs of the automotive environment. The scalable optical bandwidth accommodates growing data demands, while energy efficiency and EMI resistance align with vehicle power, performance and safety constraints.
TS-PON's innovative network architecture, reduced wiring complexity and weight, high bandwidth, full redundancy support, and future-proofing capabilities make it an ideal solution to empower the automotive industry's evolution toward centralized computing and enhanced connectivity, enabling safer, more efficient, and smarter vehicles.
Time Sensitive Networks:
For time sensitive networks in industrial and automotive, a trio of TS-PON chipset take center stage: Core, Gate, and Node chips. The TS-PON network is meticulously designed to guarantee exceptional determinism with microsecond-level latency from end to end. The Gate chip empowers the TS-PON network to operate seamlessly across a hybrid infrastructure, encompassing both fiber optic and copper cables. It also enables networks with varying speeds to coexist and function seamlessly within the same network infrastructure.
The Node SoC comes equipped with an industrial grade MCU with distinctive features, providing precise control for high performance industrial motors and offering advanced communication capabilities.
For conventional networks running ITU XG(S)PON/GPON protocols, Vulcan offers an extensive family of advanced OLT and ONU chips tailored for deployment in FTTR, FTTH, POL, and PON Stick markets.
