Kithara: real-time support for precision time protocol

Kithara Software has announced the support for the Precision Time Protocol (IEEE 1588 v2), which allows for the precise synchronization of network participants with Kithara RealTime Suite. PTP can be used for image data alignment of cameras, determination of exact measurement data or the execution of parallel robotic tasks. With the PTP stack by Kithara, accurate timestamps can be generated with deviations in the sub-microsecond range for highly precise synchronization of PCs. With a connection to GPS, this way, computers can even be synchronized on a global scale.

To run the synchronization, the best master clock algorithm (BMCA) can be utilized, which will determine the participant with the most accurate system clock within a network and set it as reference for the other participants. With the PTP stack by Kithara, raw Ethernet as well as IP/UDP can be used as transport layer. For high-precision timestamping, a variety of PTP-compatible network controllers are supported. The priorities, according to which the BMCA determines the best clock, can be adjusted with the API.
