Courtesy: HMS Industrial NetworksHMS Industrial Networks' Ixxat IEEE 1588 has protocol software for IEEE 802.1AS that is designed to provide highly accurate time synchronization of audio/video broadcasting (AVB) and time-sensitive networking (TSN). Using the IXXAT IEEE 802.1AS protocol software, customers benefit from a proven and tested software package as well as from a professional product maintenance and further development. The 802.1AS protocol software offered by HMS comes as ANSI C code and has a modular structure with a clear separation of the media dependent and media independent layers. This enables porting and implementation into various target systems.

As a time-aware, slave-only end station, the software is the receiver of time-synchronization information provided by a grandmaster and enables synchronization of local real-time clocks (RTCs). The software supports the best master clock algorithm, which can be disabled. In addition to meeting the requirements of AVB and TSN systems, special needs within automotive systems are supported such as fast synchronization times (<1 microsecond within one second) and optimization of memory usage.
