VadaTech announces AMC005 time and frequency module with on-board GPS
VadaTech announces AMC005 time and frequency module with on-board GPS: Integrated systems and embedded board specialist, VadaTech, announces the AMC005 Time and Frequency module with on-board GPS. The AMC005 provides a feature-rich, GPS / PTP (1588) / IRIG / NTP bus-level timing solution to MicroTCA and ATCA systems.
Precision UTC timestamps and GPS location/time/status are all made available via PCIe registers to the host CPU/application. GPS location, time and status data are available via backplane Ethernet broadcast/unicast with selectable bonding and failover. Optional back-up provides non-volatile storage of the almanac, ephemeris, and last position data to enable rapid ‘warm start’ re-acquisition.
The AMC005 can demodulate IRIG amplitude modulated (AM) signals and receive/transmit IRIG DC level shift (DCLS) signals. The disciplined clock, 1PPS, divided-down clocks, IRIG DCLS, and time trigger may be output in any combination of the backplane clock channels. The module acts as a grand-master clock or clock bridge between GPS / PTP (1588) / IRIG / NTP to provide enhanced flexibility to the system design, and also supports Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) to eliminate clock drift at the Ethernet PHY level.
According to VadaTech, the flexibility of the AMC005 makes it suitable for a broad range of applications requiring precision time synchronisation, including communication networks, sonar, bi-static radar and SIGINT.
VadaTech focuses on AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA, VPX and PCIe embedded computing solutions from board-level products, chassis-level platforms, to configurable application-ready systems. It combines electrical, mechanical, software, and system-level expertise to provide customised commercial or rugged computing to meet complex customer requirements. VadaTech also offers specialized product solutions for VME, CompactPCI, and other architectures. A member of PICMG and VITA, VadaTech has headquarters, design and manufacturing facilities in North America, with design, support and sales offices in Europe and Asia Pacific.
