TSN Automotive Switch Q50

TSN-enabled Switch for the Lab

The TSN Automotive Switch Q50 offers extensive features that save valuable time in dynamic laboratory setups. Above all, a secure and stable gPTP implementation according to the automotive standard is an essential prerequisite for achieving stable results in a time-sensitive environment. The switch supports the PTP master and slave modes and is adjustable per port.

The high precision pulse-per-second (PPS) output provides nanosecond-accurate time base monitoring. This allows even sophisticated synchronization scenarios to be realized. The administration and parameterization can be carried out in a user-friendly way through a web-based GUI as well as via an API.
