Brandywine Communications’ VME635091-SYNCCLOCK is a time and frequency processor module that provides precision time and frequency reference to the host computer and peripheral data acquisition systems. Time is acquired from time code signals, typically IRIG B. Time is displayed on the front panel (hours, minutes, seconds) via LED digits.

Central to the operation of the module is a disciplined 10 MHz oscillator and 100-nanosecond clock. Current time (days to 100 nanoseconds) can be accessed across the bus with zero latency, which allows for very high-speed time requests. The oscillator is rate matched (disciplined) to the input time source and drives the precision 10 MHz frequency output and time code generator circuitry. If the time source is lost, the module will continue to maintain time (flywheel).

Both time code generation and translation are supported. The generator supplies IRIG B time code output that is synchronized to the input time source. The translator decodes IRIG B time code inputs.

An event time capture feature provides a means of latching the time of an event input and/or generating a bus interrupt that is coincident with an external TTL pulse. The module can also be programmed to generate a periodic pulse rate/interrupt as well as
to generate a strobe/interrupt at a single predetermined time.

Brandywine’s miniature GPS Disciplined Oscillator combines the power of our existing disciplined oscillators in a footprint the size of an OCXO. Designed with interoperability in mind, the Miniature GPS Disciplined Oscillator meets military requirements such as MIL-STD-188-164A.  The GPSDO supplies a low noise, precision 10 MHz frequency reference signal output.  This output is accurate to 1x10-12 when slaved to a GPS source.

 
The frequency standard is also able to slave to an external 1PPS signal to steer and hold the internal oscillator and clock system precisely in time. Time and frequency information maintains its high accuracy with the internal oscillator even when no satellites can be tracked.  A serial data port is provided to report time, date, position, and GPS satellite health and signal strength.
 
Optional capabilities include automatic interface to an external military GPS receiver such as the Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR), Standard frequency output is 10 MHZ, but other frequencies are possible.
