2021-Q4 Release of the syn1588® Software Suite (v1.14)

We are happy to announce the new release of our syn1588® software suite.
Version v1.14 will offer you, beside stability improvements and optimizations, the following new features


New Logger

The new PTP logger is a complete re-work of the existing logging class. The new default implementation utilizes the libfmt library v8.0.1 which provides a rich feature-set for formatting log output and is part of the C++ Standard 2020.

With this new logger a connection (“log sink”) to common OS loggers has been added.
The Event Logger for Windows OS and syslog for Linux OS.

You can find a detailed description in syn1588® Upcoming Changes, which also includes a roadmap and migration recommendations for moving from the old to the new logger


Redundant Clock Synchronization Update

We introduced the new syn1588® utility redSync with release v1.12.
The current release features an extension to this utility, providing redundant synchronization via the two network interfaces of a syn1588® Dual NIC.

For more information, refer to the Application Note AN034.


Linux module: syn1588® technology, PCIe NIC, Dual NIC

The syn1588® technology, which incorporates the syn1588® Software Suite, can also be applied to non-standard systems (SoC FPGAs) that are Linux based.
The Linux module has been generalized to better support devices utilizing a device tree (SoC FPGAs).

This update also adds:

  • A basic PHC interface to the syn1588® hardware clock, this feature will be extended in future releases
  • A module parameter to configure a syn1588® Dual NIC to use a common hardware clock for both interfaces or two independent hardware clocks (default)
  • A module parameter to silence the SMA outputs of a syn1588® PCIe Single NIC or Dual NIC
Quality-of-life Improvements
  • The syn1588® Linux module is now available as rpm package for easier installation and maintenance in RedHat and CentOS based Linux systems

  • A syn1588® Linux module kernel parameter can be used to silence the SMA outputs at system start

  • The syn1588® Software Suite components started as Windows service can now be accessed via the shared memory API from a user application. This is disabled by default. Refer to AN021 for more information.​​​
