Many applications such as power distribution and industrial automation require the integration of IEEE 1588 time delivery into specialist systems. The P60 board is designed to address such needs where it is not economically or commercially viable to design a discrete IEEE 1588 solution, or integrate one of the our modules directly into your design. Instead, the P60 provides all the functionality of the M68 module on a convenient carrier board that provides dual Ethernet ports (one RJ45 and one SFP), a USB host connector and interconnect for all the module’s input and output signals, allowing integration of an IEEE 1588 function without custom PCB design.
The P60 can operate as either a PTP ordinary clock in either master or slave mode, or as a gateway clock, in which it functions as a PTP boundary clock while also optionally accepting a time-of-day input from a GNSS receiver to allow multiple sources of time to be used simultaneously.
One of the innovative features of the P60 is that it can be integrated into an existing communication path. It features a low latency, fully transparent data communication channel at gigabit speed, allowing for daisy chaining architectures.
The P60 has industry leading algorithms that enable it to extract precise time from a remote master over a real-world network in which the timing packets experience packet delay variation (PDV) caused by multiple switches handling interacting traffic flows.
In addition, the P60 has cutting-edge patented technology that allows simultaneous operation with both PTP and a local GNSS-based source of time. The ability to use multiple synchronization inputs is particularly powerful in today’s applications, where a host system may need to be versatile and deployable in diverse environments.
