Datasheet - Thunderbolt E GPS

Precise GPS Clock for Wireless Infrastructure


The Trimble® Thunderbolt® E GPS Disciplined Clock is Trimble's latest offering for GPS synchronization devices targeting the wireless infrastructure. This fifth-generation GPS clock combines a 12-channel GPS receiver, control circuitry, and a high-quality ovenized oscillator on a single board, providing increased integrity and reliability at a lower size and cost.


The Thunderbolt E's level of integration makes it a perfect solution for precise timing applications in the wireless industry. Among its uses are synchronizing the E911 positioning infrastructure and maximizing bandwidth for a wireless local loop. The architecture is comparable to systems currently used to maintain CDMA holdover performance requirements in telecommunications systems.


Key Features

  • OCXO provides stable 10 MHz and 1 PPS output to maximizes bandwidth
  • Combined GPS receiver and ovenized oscillator on one board
  • Exceeds holdover specifications of 8 μs over 24 hours

Benefits

  • High volume manufacturing provides reliable low-cost products
  • Small form-factor idea in its case or as a board only can be embedded into digital broadcast applications as a cost-effective frequency source
  • Provides reliable performance in hostile RF environments
  • Extremely cost-competitive timing solution for volume synchronization applications due to a high level of integration and volume production techniques
