PROFIBUS에서 대역폭 할당 기법 구현
Fieldbuses are used as the lowest level communication network for real-time communication in factory automation and process control systems. Data generated from field devices can be divided into three categories: sporadic real-time, periodic real-time and non real-time data. Since these data share one fieldbus network medium, it needs a method that allocate the limited bandwidth of fieldbus network to the sporadic real-time, periodic real-time and non real-time traffic. This paper introduces an implementation method of bandwidth allocation scheme introduced in [51 on PROFIBUS. Using the modified PROFIBUS FDL(Fieldbus Data Link layer), the bandwidth allocation scheme introduced in [51 is verified by the experiments.
