TTP (Time-Triggered Protocol) is an open and modular control system platform technology that supports the design of upgradeable, reusable and easy-to-integrate systems. As a time-triggered fieldbus, it can significantly impact the design of modern electronics and control system architectures for next-generation vehicles and industrial applications.
TTP was originally designed at the Vienna University of Technology in the early 80s. From 1998 onwards TTTech Computertechnik AG has taken over the further development of TTP, providing software and hardware solutions for this data communication protocol. Today TTP communication controller chips and IP are available from multiple sources including austriamicrosystems (SWX: AMS), ON Semiconductor (NASDAQ: ONNN) and ALTERA (NasdaqGM: ALTR).
