SyncPoint PCIe-1000 PTP Clock Card 


The NEW high accurracy, high precision SyncPoint™ PCIe-1000 PTP clock card provides ultra-high availability time with sub-microsecond accurate time stamps for programs running in Linux. The IEEE 1588 based SyncPoint™ PCIe-1000 has been optimized to be resilient to network related time errors and provides nanosecond caliber time as needed to a Linux program in under a microsecond.


  • 10 ns accuracy to master, typical
  • 10 ns time stamping precision
  • Gigabit Ethernet interface
  • High performance OCXO oscillator standard
  • Precision 1PPS Output
  • DMA time writes to host memory with accuracy as good or better than 600 nanoseconds
  • Continuous time available in Major.Minor or total nanoseconds
  • Linux driver with source code included
  • IEEE 1588 2008 v2 /PTP compliant
  • Low profile PCIe form factor

GPS Disciplined Atomic Oscillator Modules and High Frequency Source Modules 


GPS Disciplined Oscillators (GPSDO)s 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 synchronization when GPS outages occur. Symmetricom offers a full line of these board-level products, which are an ideal choice when full instrument functionality isn't required. For the many systems that require an embedded GPSDO, these proven modules reduce design cycle time and risk compared to developing a custom solution.

The GPS-500 is a 10 MHz OCXO-based GPSDO featuring a very small footprint, a low profile, and an extended operating temperature range, all in a design aimed at cost-sensitive LTE applications


The GPS-1000 is a 10 MHz OCXO-based GPSDO with a small footprint and a host of firmware enhancements that make it ideal for avionics applications.


Like the GPS-1000, the GPS-2000 is a 10 MHz OCXO-based GPSDO with a small footprint and firmware enhancements aimed at avionics applications. However, the GPS-2000 goes further, adding additional telemetry features and a daisy-chain redundancy capability for mission-critical applications.


GPS-2500 and GPS-2550
The GPS-2500 and GPS-2550 are 10 MHz Double-Oven OCXO-based GPSDO's. The GPS-2500 covers a temperature range of 0°C to +75°C, while the GPS-2550 covers an extended range of -25°C to +75°C.


GPS-2600 and GPS-2650
The GPS-2600 and GPS-2650 are 100 MHz Double-Oven OCXO-based GPSDO's. The GPS-2600 covers a temperature range of -25°C to +75°C, while the GPS-2650 covers an extended range of -25°C to +85°C.


GPS-2700 and GPS-2750
When the ultimate in performance is required, choose the GPS-2700 or GPS-2750, which use Symmetricom's Quantum™ SA.45s Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) as their reference oscillator.


SSM-2000 and SSM-2650
Aimed at radar applications, the SSM-2000 and SSM-2650 both provide six 100 MHz outputs with high stability and very low phase noise.

Quad Serial FPDP Modules for High-Speed Digital Data Links 


Pentek introduces two quad Serial FPDP (Front Panel Data Port) modules with a Virtex-6 FPGA--the Model 71611 XMC module and the Model 7811 native PCI Express card. These new Serial FPDP modules extend Pentek's Virtex-6 Cobalt® product line by providing four channels of serial communication with up to 1 Gbyte per second of aggregate data transfer capability.


Many applications need to deliver high-speed data between systems or from sensors to a data acquisition system over extended distances. As a popular industry standard, sFPDP offers a fast, efficient, bi-directional point-to-point interconnect solution. Applications such as military radar, signal intelligence and medical imaging can take advantage of this high-throughput, minimum latency protocol. The inclusion of a user-configurable Virtex-6 FPGA allows customers to extend the factory installed sFPDP functions to perform custom signal processing for both inbound and outbound data streams.



  • Competitive pricing for cost-sensitive applications
  • Fully-compliant with Serial FPDP VITA 17.1 with copper and optical options
  • Optimized sFPDP IP cores installed in Virtex-6 FPGAs
  • Custom IP development with GateFlow Design Kit
  • Four channels each transferring data at 250 MB/sec
  • Brings sFPDP to XMC, PCIe, cPCI, VPX, rugged & conduction-cooled environments
