Time and Frequency module launched with on-board GPS

VadaTech, a manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the AMC005 Time and Frequency module with on-board GPS. The AMC005 provides a complete, feature-rich, GPS / PTP (1588) / IRIG / NTP bus-level timing solution to MicroTCA and ATCA systems.

Precision UTC timestamps and GPS location/time/status are all made available via PCIe 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.

The flexibility of the AMC005 makes it ideal for a board range of applications requiring precision time synchronization, including communication networks, sonar, bi-static radar and SIGINT.

Next Generation Freight Transport Mark Patrick | mouser Electronics
Next Generation Freight Transport
As road freight transport levels continue to grow, concerns about the impact on the environment and human health come sharply into focus. Fossil fuel dependency makes it a leading source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but shifting freight to other transportation modes will prove challenging. Solutions that will improve the efficiency and performance of road freight transport are therefore essential to achieve defined environmental goals. In this blog, we will explore a potential solution that has been pioneered by Siemens - called eHighway. This combines the efficiency of electrified railways with the flexibility of trucks in order to form an innovative, next generation freight traffic system that is efficient, economical and environmentally friendly.
