Title:
TIME-SYNCHRONOUS SLAVE APPARATUS AND COMMUNICATION CONTROL METHOD
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/145292
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A token management slave apparatus (TSS1) is included in a communication system. The communication system includes a master apparatus (M), a time-asynchronous slave apparatus (AS1, AS2) that communicates with the master apparatus (M) and that is not in time synchronization with the master apparatus (M), and a time-synchronous slave apparatus (SS1, SS2, SS3) that communicates with the master apparatus (M) and that is in time synchronization with the master apparatus (M). The token management slave apparatus (TSS1) sets, in between a plurality of synchronous communication periods that are a plurality of periods in which the master apparatus (M) communicates with the time-synchronous slave apparatus (SS1, SS2, SS3), an asynchronous communication period that is a period in which the master apparatus (M) communicates with the time-asynchronous slave apparatus (AS1, AS2). The token management slave apparatus (TSS1) then commands the time-asynchronous slave apparatus (AS1, AS2) to communicate with the master apparatus (M) when the asynchronous communication period comes.
