9 February 2018- Kalycito together with OSADL and Fraunhofer IOSB successfully conclude Phase 1 of their “Multivendor TSN and Open Source OPC UA” program, with demonstration of OPC UA Pub/Sub integrated with leading TSN silicon platforms. The demonstration was located at the OSADL booth, in Embedded World 2018 trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany.

The results of the project were presented at the OSADL booth of Embedded World 2018 (hall 4, booth 168) in a demonstrator with several TSN nodes and concurrent real-time and non-real-time communication. The demonstrator contained a variety of TSN hardware and software implementations from various vendors that communicate with each other using a unified OPC UA implementation. For the first time under an Open Source license, it provides the following features that can be used in proprietary products:

* Brokerless OPC UA Pub/Sub via IP multicast and the binary message encoding format according to draft of part 14 of the OPC UA specification

* Integration of the publisher in a regular OPC UA server with additional real-time interrupting

* Implementation of the subscribers as stand-alone software
