The SFN6322F accelerates time synchronization by performing high-precision hardware time stamping of IEEE 1588 Ethernet frames together with high-performance, ultra-low latency application acceleration.
The SFN6322F eliminates a secondary server adapter (freeing PCIe slots) and dedicated appliances, as well as additional physical networks, which would otherwise be required for clock distribution, while facilitating slave servers to precisely synchronize internal clocks to a network master clock. Combining the industry's lowest latency at high message rates with clock synchronization on a single network simplifies latency-sensitive applications where clock synchronization is critical, such as financial services, industrial automation, geological sciences, and telecomm synchronization.
The SFN6322F driver is seamlessly interfaces to host software time synchronization solutions that utilize the standard Linux socket option so time stamping, such as the PTPv2 daemon, which implements the IEEE1588 time synchronization protocol.
