FIPWarrior

The evolution of the FIP / WorldFIP network from 1 to 25 Mbits and beyond ...

1 - Presentation of the system (R & D)

.

FIPWarrior includes a set of properties necessary for the operation of the FIP WorldFIP fieldbus.

Written in C (bar metal) and installed in a programmable component, this solution will allow a remarkable scalability on many points: distance, speed, security, durability, costs 

.

Focusing on the CERN MasterFIP program, FIPWarrior integrates additional modules needed to meet the FIP / WorldFIP network functions.

3 - Why this solution FIPWarrior ?

.

The FIP WorldFIP network offers undeniable advantages: proven and reliable, inexpensive system (no annual fee), cybersecurity, resistant to noise and radiation, real-time solution ...

For all these reasons, users want to keep this technology, they also want to meet new uses:

+ speed

+ distance

+ flexibility

+ interoperability

+ sustainability

5 - Evolutions and requirements

.

The FIPWariror technology will initially be able to reach a configurable speed up to 25 Mbits (note that the speed of the useful data on FIP are conditioned by the macrocycle), as well as a parameterizable distance by the user up to 25 Mbps. km between station and more.

Equipment such as the GOFIP will be able to convert "Fibrated" data to "coppered" data, as well as to go from FIP High Speed ​​to FIP Low Speed.

For example, the number of FIP arbiter cards can be increased, optical swtichs (SOFIP) can be added to the network, or GOFIP repeaters to have wired in each station.
