IEEE 1588 is a precise time protocol (PTP) used to synchronize clocks in computer networks. In a local area network, it can control the clock accuracy in the sub-microsecond range, making it suitable for measurement and control systems. With 5G becoming more available throughout the world, there are a large number of base stations and IoT devices which require a large-scale network synchronization. Renesas advanced clock recovery algorithms and precision timing devices reconstruct accurate synchronization signals for 5G networks. And, the CL8040 Wi-Fi 6 device enables wireless configuration of IEEE 1588.
Renesas' Lab on the Cloud is an online environment where Renesas solutions, including popular evaluation boards, winning combinations and software, are hosted in a remote lab that customers access and test online.
The Precision Time Protocol (PTP) is implemented in accordance with IEEE1588, “Standard for a Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol for Networked Measurement and Control Systems” (see references for NIST website for further details and history). The master and slave configuration of the boards in this demo unit, is to show the secure and accurate synchronization of each of their clocks, so that they can work in harmony.
Renesas' complementary product portfolios of Analog + Power + Embedded Processing + Connectivity work together to deliver comprehensive solutions. Our product experts have developed "Winning Combinations," compelling product combinations that help our customers accelerate their designs and get to market faster.
