  • Time Card
    Time Card is an open-source solution for PTP-enabled networks that provides the accurate time via GNSS—with a high stability (and holdover) oscillator such as an atomic clock as a backup in the event of GNSS failure. zeroibis recommends it for those who "need to go the full self-hosted NTP route."

    > […] we are currently working with several suppliers and will have their contact info soon available to allow you to puchase an out-of-the-box ready Time Card.

    I didn’t want to click this so I assume others here won’t either. Here’s the top points they highlight themselves:

    - Facebook engineers have built and open-sourced an Open Compute Time Appliance, an important component of the modern timing infrastructure.

    - To make this possible, we came up with the Time Card — a PCI Express (PCIe) card that can turn almost any commodity server into a time appliance.

    - With the help of the OCP community, we established the Open Compute Time Appliance Project [1] and open-sourced every aspect of the Open Time Server.[2]

    Really nice of them to release this. However, unless I'm missing something, the HDL for the FPGA on the Time Card is not part of the release. It looks like it uses a proprietary IP core from NetTimeLogic

    They do include FPGA bit streams, but it's disingenuous to claim a fully open source release.
