White Rabbit-Based Time Distribution at NIST



Joshua J. Savory, Jeffrey A. Sherman, Stefania Romisch


The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is responsible for ensuring the quality of its international and domestic time and frequency distribution systems. Since the physical inputs to these systems are not collocated within the campus, an accurate and stable infrastructure for timing signal distribution is required. Currently, a typical link requires local delays to be known with an uncertainty of ~200 ps or less and that the time deviation be
