syn1588® Gbit Switch – Applications
Application: Precision Time Distribution in Complex Networks for IEEE1588 Slaves
In this application, IEEE1588 nodes, such as PCs equipped with the syn1588® PCIe NIC, achieve clock synchronization accuracy of 10 nanoseconds or better. This synchronization is achieved by aligning their local hardware clocks with the precise time information distributed by an IEEE1588 grandmaster across a complex network. The syn1588® Gbit Switch plays a pivotal role as a transparent clock (TC), significantly enhancing clock synchronization performance.
Using the syn1588® Gbit Switch as an IEEE1588 transparent clock, we have successfully demonstrated clock synchronization accuracy exceeding 10 nanoseconds, even when cascading 11 syn1588® Gbit Switch devices.
