TSEP and IntervalZero partner on real-time IEEE1588 master stack for Windows

TSEP and IntervalZero agree on a cooperation to port the IEEE 1588 stack from TSEP to RTX64. This makes it possible to develop applications with exact time synchronization under Windows with real-time properties.

The IEEE 1588 stack from TSEP provides all means necessary for a time synchronization via so-called end-to-end (E2E) connections and specified according to IEEE 1588-2008 (version 2). In addition, a general synchronization algorithm is included, which allows synchronization in the range of 40ns. However, it is always possible to define your own synchronization algorithm and to integrate it easily. The IEEE 1588 stack is therefore a good choice for users for whom IEEE 1588 compliance is a necessary requirement. The IEEE 1588 stack has been completely developed in C ++ and according to the C ++ 11 standard.

IntervalZero RTX64 transforms Windows into a real-time operating system. Already existing partnerships allow customers of IntervalZero the use of software stacks for EtherCAT and CANopen, which can run on its own core, independently of delays caused by Windows. The partnership with TSEP now adds an IEEE 1588 stack that meets future requirements for IEEE1588 or PTP (Precision Time Protocol). The generic approach of the IEEE 1588 stack from TSEP combines the possibilities of PTP with the real-time solution of IntervalZero under Windows into a very interesting solution. With the deterministic nature of RTX64, the synchronization algorithm can be realized much more precisely for comparison with the IEEE 1588 master.
