css600_ntsencoder converts the 64-bit timestamp value from the timestamp generator to a 7-bit encoded value, called a narrow timestamp.
The narrow timestamp encoder also encodes and sends the timestamp value over a 2-bit synchronization channel.
The following figure shows the external connections on the narrow timestamp encoder.
The WTimestamp_Slave interface comprises the 64-bit timestamp value, plus the tsforcesync signal. tsforcesync is asserted whenever the counter rolls over to zero, or on a successful update of the counter.
