Semtech has rolled out the ACS9522T, the latest addition to the company's ToPSync platform. The device is a network timing platform that integrates a new synchronisation system on a chip (SoC).

"The new generation of ToPSync system software is designed to support these emerging requirements, particularly the collaborative use of IEEE1588 with more-traditional GPS, which enables a more robust and fault-tolerant 4G LTE backhaul network. And the ACS9522T provides this on the most highly integrated platform available, reducing the sync function to a single device. By using the ToPSync solution, our customers free themselves from worrying about the sync system design details and can instead concentrate on their areas of expertise, reducing time and cost to market," Spencer said.

The ACS9522T integrates a CPU, memory and six phase-lock loops (PLLs) needed to support IEEE1588 packet-based synchronisation as well as frequency synchronisation via synchronous Ethernet or SONET/SDH. This closely coupled architecture delivers the industry's best time alignment performance by offering advanced features such as synchronous Ethernet / IEEE 1588 hybrid mode operation and network asymmetry correction.

The device also supports different system synchronisation architectures without loss of flexibility. The multiplL architecture allows seamless integration of multiple local and network timing sources for enhanced system availability. It also features a brand new GUI for rapid system configuration and prototyping, enabling an almost push-button process to convert the configuration into production system software.
