The IEEE 1588 precision time protocol (PTP) allows designers to synchronize slave clocks to a master clock over Ethernet. By using the same time base for all events and timestamps, networked devices can be synchronized with exceptional precision. The DP83640 Precision PHYTER® device from National Semiconductor delivers the highest level of precision clock synchronization for real time industrial connectivity based on the IEEE 1588 standard.
View this brief Webcast to learn more about the following design topics:
• What is the IEEE 1588 PTP and how does it synchronize a network?
• Network topology, time adjustments and rate correction
• Adding PTP synchronization to a system
• Implementation options and considerations
• DP83640 precision PHYTER features and benefits
By attending this event, you’ll learn how the 1588 PTP fits into the Ethernet standard and how you can achieve new levels of precision in your next application without increasing development or total system costs.
