Arion IP Evaluation Platform

Automotive Ethernet Switch IP for Advanced Automotive Architectures

TTTech’s Arion IP Evaluation Platform is an Ethernet switch IP core technology demonstrator based on our proven automotive Ethernet switch IP designed for advanced integrated applications in the automotive sector. This IP enables efficient design and integration of future automotive E/E architectures at lower BOM costs and with higher maximum network bandwidth utilization.

The Arion IP is designed to allow OEMs and Tier 1s to integrate more functions at lower backbone communication line speed and supports robust integration without interferences. It supports scalable packet inspection and future advanced protocol extensions.

The Arion IP enables full compliance with OpenTC11 and IEEE TSN protocols (802.1Qci, 802.1CB, 802.1Qbv, 802.1AS) to support mixed soft-time, real-time and hard real-time traffic. A flexible and user-friendly switch configuration tool is included.
