This paper introduces an application framework for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1588 standard. This application framework developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) consists of five layers: hardware layer, operating system layer, middleware and tools layer, IEEE 1588 layer, and application layer. A prototype application system has been developed based on the established IEEE 1588 application framework using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) tool. A case study of the IEEE 1588 Delay Request-Response mechanism based on the application framework is presented. This application framework can ease and simplify the design and development and reduce the development time of IEEE 1588 applications.
