Open Source OPC UA PubSub over TSN project phase #3 launched

By: Carsten Emde

Letter of Intent with call for participation is now available

The Open Source licensed implementation of OPC UA open62541 is a certified and industry-grade SDK including a PubSub implementation suitable for TSN. It is maintained a Fraunhofer IOSB, Germany with main contributions by the Indian software system integrator Kalycito and testing and integration support as well as project management by OSADL. The SDK is successfully used in a large number of projects.

Based on feedback received by users, certification shall now be obtained on a higher profile level and more features be added, specifically

  1. certification for the "Embedded UA Server“ profile as defined by OPC Foundation (current certification is for the “Micro Embedded Device Server” profile),
  2. loading configuration from a text file and
  3. security enhancements for PubSub.

To achieve these goals, phase #3 of the previously designed community project was launched and interested parties are now invited to participate in a similar manner as in the successful previous phases #1 and #2. In detail, the participant signs a Letter of Intent to contribute at Silver, Gold, Platinum or Diamond level. Since the funding threshold has already been reached, the Letter of Intent is immediately converted into a grant agreement and software development not yet funded is added to the work list.

Phase #3 includes software components on the OPC UA side as well as on the PubSub over TSN part of the project. For the first time, participants can choose the extent to which they would like to support either one or the other part, or both parts. Details of the various components to be developed are given in a Letter of Intent.
