Timing chips & modules

Our time and frequency products use the capabilities and accuracy of a GPS satellite synchronized clock to deliver pulse-per-second and frequency reference signals for many industries.

From wireless infrastructure and base station timing, to laboratory reference and event time stamping- timing modules and boards are ideal choice for high volume manufacturing applications.

Trimble line of multi GNSS receivers are designed specifically for integration on a circuit board using surface mount technology. When operating in Over Determined Timing Mode the accuracy of pulse per second (PPS) is within 15 nanoseconds of GNSS/UTC.

Trimble quality timing chips and modules currently include the Mini-T GG, ICM SMT 360 Multi GNSS and the RES SMT 360 GG (last two available also on a carrier board).

Mini-T GG

The Trimble® Mini-T™ GG is a multi-GNSS (GPS, GLONASS) Disciplined Clock, optimized to generate precise timing signal. Designed specifically for compact, high-volume applications. When operating in Over Determined Timing Mode the accuracy of pulse per second (PPS) is within 15 nanoseconds of GNSS/UTC. Synchronization for next generation. Proven Reliability. The Mini-T™ GG gives OEMs the opportunity to embed a low-cost precise time and frequency reference, in our smallest form-factor yet.

Trimble created the Mini-T™ GG using clock technology proven in generations of deployed units used in 4G networks (LTE, WiMAX, HSPA+) and digital broadcasting applications. It utilizes the latest in GNSS technology, combined with a precision ovenized oscillator for near atomic clock precision timing.

ICM SMT 360 Multi GNSS on Carrier Board

Trimble’s Resolution SMTx on a Carrier Card is a significant new development in GPS architecture: Designed specifically for compact, high-volume applications, the Resolution SMTx shrinks its form factor to a surface mount package, about the same size as a postage stamp. With the same pulse per second (PPS) accuracy and timing features, the Resolution SMTx is the most cost-effective timing board ever produced by Trimble. The receiver is a full- featured, all-in-view, 12-channel, parallel tracking, embeddable GPS receiver designed to provide precise GPS or UTC time and synchronization for many static timing applications. The Resolution SMTx on a Carrier Card includes many of Trimble’s standard timing features, including the Timing Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (T-RAIM) algorithm, automatic self-survey.

  • Extended temperature range (-40/+85 °C)
  • Compact surface-mount package (2.54 mm T x 19 mm W x 19 mm L) in tape and reel packaging for low-cost, high-volume manufacturing
  • Accurate 1 PPS or even second output, synchronized to GPS or UTC within 15 nanoseconds (1 σ)
  • T-RAIM-Timing Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring provides high PPS integrity
  • Automatic self-survey
  • TSIP and NMEA protocols
