I actually also thought of implementing PTP but for a slightly
different goal: synchronise the clock of the different CAN
controllers connected to a same Linux host. But so far, it is
just a rough idea and I never looked really deep into the
technical details of linuxptp.

However, I did not know about DeviceNET. I am not really aware of
the use cases for industrial automation applications.

Glad to have asked, learnt something :)

Yours sincerely,
