PTP gateware with openXC7

PTP on FPGA timing cards and SDR cards with openXC7

This project develops open-source gateware for the Precision Time Protocol (PTP), which is essential for accurate timekeeping across servers. Implementing this technology on Xilinx ZYNQ FPGA chips, it offers a secure, reliable alternative to proprietary gateware, reducing the risk of undetected security breaches through server backdoors. This initiative not only enhances Internet security but also enables diverse applications, from 5G networks to research instruments like particle accelerators, making advanced time synchronization accessible, and safeguarding the digital ecosystem for the general public.
