New Meridian II Precision TimeBase provides an industry-best UTC time accuracy of ten nanoseconds and introduces security-hardened, high-bandwidth, network time services.

Meridian II Precision TimeBase

EndRun Technologies, a leading provider of precision time and frequency solutions, today announced the new Meridian II Precision TimeBase that sets a new standard in time and frequency performance. The Meridian II references the Global Positioning System (GPS) to provide ultra-accurate time (10 nanoseconds to UTC) and frequency (<1x10-13 per day) outputs in a security-hardened, network-centric platform.

At the core of Meridian II is a new EndRun GPS receiver that takes full advantage of the improved GPS system accuracy. EndRun optimized this receiver with over 25 years of time and frequency design experience to achieve industry-leading performance. From this core, Meridian II delivers a variety of traditional and network based time and frequency signals.

“The second-generation Meridian II continues EndRun’s heritage of pushing the envelope by delivering an industry-best, UTC time accuracy of 10 nanoseconds.” said Ron Holm, marketing manager, EndRun Technologies. “Meridian II also introduces a security-hardened, high-bandwidth network interface to synchronize evolving, network-centric applications via the Network Time Protocol (NTP) and IEEE-1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP). Frequency standard customers will be happy to know that the revolutionary ultra-low phase noise and short-term stability performance of the original Meridian continues to be provided.”

The modular architecture allows customers to configure Meridian II to meet their specific application requirements. The high-reliability design provides the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry. Meridian II supports mission-critical operations in a wide range of government and commercial applications including telecommunications, satellite communications, digital video broadcast, simulcast radio, test range, test and measurement, calibration labs, power utilities and many more.

Features include:

  •     Time accuracy of 10 nanoseconds RMS to UTC(USNO)
  •     Frequency accuracy better than 1x10-13 per day
  •     Short-term stability option (<6x10-13 at 1 second)
  •     Ultra-low phase noise 5/10 MHz option (<-115/-110 dBc @ 1 Hz offset)
  •     Dual gigabit Ethernet ports support high-bandwidth NTP server (7500 packets/second)
  •     Security-hardened to meet the highest Information Assurance requirements
  •     IEEE-1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) Grandmaster option with 8 nanosecond precision
  •     Modularity enables custom configuration for up to 23 outputs
