Insights

Deterministic networking: from niches to the mainstream?

The TCP/IP-based network environment is becoming more deterministic in nature, driven not only by the response times of humans, but by those of multitudes of connected devices.

Who doesn't need Ethernet timestamps?

Three ways to implement a real time deterministic Ethernet design using IEEE 1588 time stamping and some of the applications which use each method.

An introduction to Synchronized Ethernet

The basics of a new Synchronous Ethernet protocol, what's needed to implement it in deterministic real-time networked apps and to deal with board design challenges presented.

Basics of real-time measurement, control, and communication using IEEE 1588

John Eidson reviews the state of the art in bringing deterministic operation to the Ethernet before the IEEE's 1588 network synchronization protocol. The first in a series.


Development

IEEE-1394 and AS5643 bring deterministic networking to high reliability Mil-Aero designs

How to use the IEEE-1394b-2002 (Firewire) serial interconnect specification (aka SAE standard AS5643) as a deterministic network architecture for real-time control bus apps.

Understanding IEEE's deterministic AV bridging standards

How the IEEE 802.1 Audio/Video Bridging enhancement to the Ethernet standard delivers time- synchronized, low-latency audio and video while retaining 100% compatibility with that legacy spec.

Using IEEE-1588 transparent clocks to improve system time synchronization accuracy

When deploying IEEE-1588 for system time synchronization in a network design, it is necessary to consider the timing accuracy you require, and how well the slave you want to use performs.

Using IEEE 1588 for synchronization of network-connected devices

A brief tutorial on the IEEE 1588 Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol and its use in wired/wireless network apps including CDMA, GSM, and femtocells.
