IEEE 1588 hardware implementation.

I am designing a system that will use the x550. I want to have the future possibility of IEEE 1588 precision time protocol. The SDP (software defined pins) of the x550 will be connected to an FPGA for this purpose. Is it important to have an ultra accurate clock source on the x550 for 1588? Or does the FPGA require this clock source?

Hi pfrechette,

 

 

Have you tried check on the data sheet below if this could be of any help?

I have the latest datasheet. From it, I cannot determine where the best place in the design is to put an ultra accurate clock source.
