InnoRoutes research and development team published a research paper on "Architecture of a Synchronized Low-Latency Network Node Targeted to Research and Education" in collaboration with Verilogic.
As line speeds are sufficient for most applications, reduction of latency and jitter are gaining in importance. We introduce and discuss the architecture of a novel networking device that provides low-latency switching and routing. It integrates an up-to-date FPGA with a standard x86-64 processor and targets Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) and machine-to-machine communication (M2M). First results show a cut-through latency of 2 – 2.5 μs for its 12 Gigabit Ethernet ports and full line rate packet processing. It features frequency synchronization across networks and is easily extendable, enabling researchers to build experiments in areas like industrial, automotive, and 5G mobile access networks, with the highest precision, repeatability, and ease.
