2.4.2. Timestamp encoder

The timestamp encoder converts the 64-bit timestamp value from the timestamp generator to a 7-bit encoded value. This is called a narrow timestamp. It also encodes and sends the timestamp value over a 2-bit synchronization channel.

Figure 2.19 shows the external connections on the timestamp encoder.
