This paper presents an IEEE 1588–2008 adapter that provides existing Gigabit Ethernet equipment with the functionalities required to clock synchronization on the order of sub-microsecond. To compensate the time error caused by the queuing delays in the Gigabit Ethernet equipment, the adapter measures the residence time and runs the peer delay mechanism for the equipment. Major functional blocks including the clock synchronization cores, Media Access Controls (MACs), and frame buffers have been… CONTINUE READING
