The Trimble® Thunderbolt® E GPS Disciplined Clock is Trimble’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 wireless local loop. The architecture is comparable to systems currently used to maintain the tough CDMA holdover specification. This makes the Thunderbolt E GPS clock a natural for a CDMA clock, the digital standard for cellular phones.
The Thunderbolt E GPS clock outputs a 10 MHz reference signal and a 1 PPS signal with an over-determined solution synchronized to GPS or UTC time The 10 MHz reference accommodates applications requiring sub-microsecond timing. The Trimble T-RAIM (Time-Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitor) algorithm is used to monitor satellites to ensure signal integrity.
