A deep dive in Sub-nanosecond time synchronization

More and more electronic systems find their application in distributed, networked computing architectures. Synchronizing actions using precision timing concepts is becoming increasingly common, and with that the need for very high precision time. 

Wired triggering implementations are replaced by time triggered operation and time-stamped sampling. Where sub—nanosecond synchronization found its way over the years in research and academia, you now find it in various industrial applications. This development is supported by standardization efforts, like that formulated by the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol. White Rabbit, a precision timing protocol developed by CERN, was adopted by that same standard as the default High Accuracy (HA) variant.

In the white paper "Embedded Precision Timing, A deep dive in sub-nanosecond time synchronization”  Dirk van den Heuvel (Embedded Systems Architect at TOPIC) zooms in on the implementation aspects of precision timing, how it can be facilitated in various solutions, and how it can be used in specific applications. Addressing Precision Timing in general, White Rabbit specifically as well as the various implementations that TOPIC has been working on.
