Thunderbolt (Formerly Trimble Thunderbolt) E GPS Disciplined Clock
Variations of the Thunderbolt (Formerly Trimble Thunderbolt) E GPS Disciplined Clock
Precise GPS Clock for Wireless Infrastructure
The Protempis® Thunderbolt® E GPS Disciplined Clock is Protempis's latest offering for GPS synchronization devices targeting the wireless infrastructure. This fifth-generation GPS clock combines a 12-channel GPS receiver, control circuitry, and a high-quality ovenized oscillator on a single board, providing increased integrity and reliability at a lower size and cost.
The Thunderbolt E's level of integration makes it a perfect solution for precise timing applications in the wireless industry. Among its uses are synchronizing the E911 positioning infrastructure and maximizing bandwidth for a wireless local loop. The architecture is comparable to systems currently used to maintain CDMA holdover performance requirements in telecommunications systems.
- Ovenized quartz oscillator provides stable 10 MHz and 1 PPS output to maximizes bandwidth
- Combined GPS receiver and ovenized oscillator on one board
- High volume manufacturing provides reliable low-cost products
What is a GPS Clock or GPS Disciplined Clock?
A GPS clock a combination of a GPS receiver and a high-quality, stable oscillator such as a quartz or rubidium oscillator whose output is controlled to agree with the signals broadcast by GPS or other GNSS satellites.
