Flexibilis Partnering with Altera to Provide an Easy Way to Integrate HSR/PRP

Flexibilis Oy and Altera Corporation today announce their collaboration to provide FPGA-based HSR/PRP solution, the Flexibilis Redundant Switch (FRS). FRS is a triple-speed (10Mbps/100Mbps/1Gbps) Ethernet Layer-2 switch that supports High-availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR), Parallel Redundancy Protocol and is compliant with the IEC 62439-3 standard. FRS also includes IEEE1588v2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) transparent clock functionality.

Altera and Flexibilis provide an easy and cost-effective way to implement the Flexibilis Redundant Switch with no upfront licensing fees, no per-unit royalty reporting and no license negotiations. The Flexibilis Redundant Switch can be easily implemented on an Altera FPGA and is fully compliance tested on the Altera Cyclone® family.
