Abstract
The last 5 years has seen increasing interest in the use of synchronized clocks in distributed system architectures. This is a direct result of the achievable synchronization performance using protocols such as IEEE 1588 and the availability of commercial silicon and infrastructure supporting these protocols. This talk will provide an update on the performance capabilities of IEEE 1588. We will also review both existing and pending applications that depend on synchronization and which in our opinion can benefit from some of the work underway in the CHESS program. In particular we will show how these techniques can be used in the field of electronic instrumentation and how the presence of a system-wide time service can be used to solve some interesting practical system problems. We will have a live demonstration of a prototype test system that uses synchronized clocks to solve problems suggested to us by a major test system integrator.
