Original Press Release:
Time and Frequency Synchronization OEM Board Now Available for Digital Broadcast and WiMAX
September 10, 2008
Unrivaled, competitively priced timing engine with remote management over IP
ROCHESTER, NY -- Immediately available from Spectracom is the most reliable, versatile, and readable time and frequency engine for digital broadcast and WiMAX applications: the Epsilon Board Model EB03. The launch of the EB03 marks the beginning of the next evolution in time and frequency by providing a competitively priced, fully integrated GPS synchronization solution in a board ready for integration. The EB03's state-of-the-art, compact design is perfectly suited for digital broadcast single frequency networks as well as emerging WiMAX infrastructure.
The EB03's versatility demonstrates itself in its operation and its build. The board can also use an external 1PPS or external 10 MHz as its reference in place of GPS. For instance, it switches automatically from one reference to another while minimizing phase jump. Depending on the customer's configuration, the connectors can be positioned on the top or bottom of the board in the factory before shipment for maximizing space. Leading the industry, the EB03 is the only time and frequency board featuring remote management via SNMP. From the convenience of a PC, hundreds of transmitters can be monitored and configured regardless of their geographic location.
Thierry Delhomme, Spectracom's director of global product management, says, "Spectracom leads the precise timing and frequency market by being the only company currently designing and manufacturing an engine of this type for the next evolution in digital broadcast and WiMAX."
For best WiMAX performance, the EB03 can be configured with a low-cost oscillator resulting in competitive pricing, which is critical for successful WiMAX implementation worldwide. For the most precise performance, mandatory for digital broadcast, a high performance OCXO oscillator is available. The EB03 is RoHS compliant. Mr. Delhomme continued, "We understand digital broadcast and by listening to our customers, we have designed the most complete timing and frequency engine with high-level performance."
