2005 : Enhancing TTP/A with a Time-Triggered Ethernet Layer

Author(s)

Abstract
TTP/A is a master slave communication protocol that in theory supports clusters of up to 250 nodes. Physical layer properties usually restrict the number to about 32 nodes per cluster. To interconnect multiple TTP/A clusters in a convenient way, the use of a small dedicated Ethernet network deemed suitable. The TTP/A masters act as slaves in the Ethernet Layer. Their operation is controlled by the Ethernet master. TDMA is used to prevent non-deterministic collisions therefore allowing real-time transfers. This work presents the outcome of a case study using this approch.
