SAN JOSE, Calif., April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Symmetricom®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a worldwide leader in precision time and frequency technologies, today announced the company will sell GPS Disciplined Oscillator (GPSDO) Modules and High-Frequency Source Modules from Jackson Labs Technologies, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of cutting-edge precision time and frequency products. GPSDOs provide time and frequency reference signals that have the same long-term accuracy as the GPS signal itself, and also provide a "holdover" capability to maintain system synchronization when GPS reception outages occur. This new set of solutions provides Symmetricom's customers with a broader range of product options, supporting a variety of price and performance levels.
"The new GPSDO Modules and High-Frequency Source Modules are a natural extension of our existing product line and enable us to better meet our customers' needs. Symmetricom customers can now select full instruments containing GPSDOs or board-level GPSDOs if they don't need full instrument functionality," said Steve Fossi, director of new business development at Symmetricom. "For systems that require an embedded GPSDO, incorporating a proven board-level GPSDO reduces design cycle time and risk compared to developing a custom solution."
Symmetricom has the following GPSDO and Source Modules available for purchase:
Today's announcement is an extension of an existing relationship with Jackson Labs and comes one year after Jackson Labs selected Symmetricom's Quantum™ SA.45s Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) as the holdover oscillator for the high-performance GPS-2700 and GPS-2750 GPSDOs. Symmetricom's GPS-27xx GPSDOs provide a revolutionary capability for mission-critical applications in GPS-denied environments. Because the Quantum SA.45s CSAC provides the stability of an atomic clock with breakthrough reductions in size, weight, and power consumption, the GPS-27xx GPSDOs offer unique benefits in portable applications such as dismounted IED jammers, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and man-pack radios.
