Thanks for the plug. Yes -- it does sub-microsecond relative time-stamping simply: one Schmitt-trigger TTL input pin and one RS232 output pin. But -- it's a $1 chip, not a black box. And the timestamps aren't UTC either. So I think it misses some requirements that Rob mentioned.
Another alternative is to use UBX-TIM-TM2 messages from ublox timing receivers.
Still, as much as I like ublox or picPET or John's high-res Arduino-based TICC or homebrew NTP / Pi project, I suspect they are not the turn-key commercial / industrial black box that Rob is looking for.
