Learn More about Harmony’s Server Application

In server applications, both Crystal resonators (XTALs) and Crystal oscillators (XOs) are essential components that provide accurate and stable timing signals for various functions within the server system.

  • System Clock Generation: Synchronizes the operation of different components within the server, including CPU, Memory modules, and I/O devices, ensuring proper timing and coordination of data transfer and processing.

  • BUS Interface Timing: Such as PCI Express (PCIe), USB, SATA, and Ethernet. These interfaces require precise clock signals to ensure reliable data transfer and synchronization between the server and peripheral devices.

  • Real-Time Clock (RTC): Timing frequency devices are employed to provide the real-time clock function in a server system. The RTC keeps track of the current date and time, which is crucial for various time-sensitive operations and timestamping system events.

  • Network Synchronization: Timing frequency devices may be used in conjunction with precision time protocol (PTP) to achieve accurate time synchronization across multiple servers or network devices. This ensures coordinated actions and data consistency in distributed systems.

  • Storage Systems: Such as HDDs and SSDs, to provide timing references for data read and write operations, ensuring the proper synchronization of data access and maintaining data integrity.

  • Redundancy and Failover: Utilized redundant server configurations to maintain system operation in case of a failure in the primary clock source. Redundant clock sources ensure continuous and uninterrupted server performance.

Harmony XTALs and XOs contribute to reliable operation, efficient data processing, and smooth communication within server systems.
