Signal Receiver Module provides time code reception.

Press Release Summary:

Measuring 21.4 x 25.0 mm, Model EB6180B1COB comprises ferrite antenna and PCB featuring MAS6180B1 AM receiver IC and necessary filter crystal and capacitor components. Model MAS6180B1 converts time code signal into digital pulses, which can be directly processed by digital circuitry such as MCU. Time, date, and daylight saving information can be retrieved from signal. Operating from 1.1-3.6 V, Model EB6180B1COB consumes 42 µA during reception and provides 25 µV/m sensitivity.

Original Press Release:

Time Signal Receiver Module

For receiving the German DCF77 or the US WWVB, British MSF and Japanese JJY60 time signal transmissions.

Helsinki, Finland - Micro Analog Systems Oy today announced the availability of the EB6180B1COB module for Time Code Reception (RCC). The new tiny time signal receiver module comprises of a ferrite antenna and a small PCB that includes a MAS6180B1 AM receiver IC accompanied with necessary filter crystal and capacitor components.

The MAS6180B1 AM receiver IC converts the time code signal into series of digital
pulses which can be directly processed by an appropriate digital circuitry such as microcontroller unit (MCU). From the signal both time, date and daylight saving information can be retrieved. The use of a ready made module gives our customers a cost effective solution with an optimized RF design. The included tuned ferrite antenna increases the value of this module even further.

Different versions are available for the 77.5 kHz German DCF77 time signal and the
60 kHz US WWVB, British MSF and Japanese JJY60.
