1588Tiny is a IEEE1588-2008 V2 Slave Only hard-only compliant clock synchronization IP core for Xilinx FPGAs. It is focused on equipments that requires basic IEEE 1588 functionality using the minimum resources. 1588Tiny is capable of accurately time-stamping IEEE 1588 telegrams and also provides a synchronized clock using only hardware modules.
An embedded processor is not required, nor a generic Ethernet MAC. 1588Tiny includes an optimized Ethernet MAC to process PTP frames. It supports Power Profile and IEC 61850 and it can also support other profiles. The reference design targets AVNET Spartan-6 FPGA LX9 Microboard.
