HENDERSON, Nev. – VadaTech Inc. in Henderson, Nev., is introducing the AMC005 time and frequency embedded computing module with on-board Global Positioning System (GPS) for applications that require precision time synchronization, including communications networks, sonar, bi-static radar and SIGINT.

The AMC005 provides a GPS / PTP (1588) / IRIG / NTP bus-level timing solution to MicroTCA and ATCA systems. Precision UTC time stamps and GPS location/time/status are all made available via PCI Express 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 backup 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.
