Exablaze High Precision Timing
"NOW in picoseconds"
Exablaze has released the world's first Network Interface Card (NIC) which can timestamp Ethernet packets to a resolution of 250 picoseconds.
Why is High Precision Timing Critical?
Performance of the market-leading low-latency NICs and switches has moved ahead of current time-keeping technology. While Ethernet Layer-2 switching latency has been achieved at under 100 nanoseconds, until now users couldn't measure or verify these levels, and buyers of low-latency networking hardware couldn’t measure performance accurately, without highly specialized equipment
With the ExaNIC X10-HPT
, users can generate latency histograms with much finer accuracy than ever before. Exablaze
’s new High Precision Timing technology has improved the accuracy of measuring the time between events by more than an order of magnitude over existing technologies: from single digit nanoseconds to 250 picoseconds. That's the time it takes for a light signal to travel 5 centimetres (2 inches) through an optical fibre.

to measure and verify the performance statistics of our own range of products, and allows customers to verify the performance of all the devices in their critical network infrastructure.
