EndRun Breaks Price-Performance Curve with New Tycho II Precision TimeBase

Santa Rosa, CA, September 16, 2015 - EndRun Technologies, a leading provider of precision time and frequency solutions, today announced the Tycho II Precision TimeBase, a new time and frequency standard that delivers an industry-best price/performance.  Tycho II references the Global Positioning System (GPS) to provide exceptional time (25 nanoseconds to UTC) and frequency (<1x10-13 per day) accuracy in a security-hardened, network-centric platform.

At the core of Tycho II is a new EndRun GPS receiver that is optimized to take advantage of the improved GPS system accuracy.  Tycho II delivers a variety of traditional and network-based time and frequency signals and services via a modular, customer-configurable platform.  Operational status is easily monitored via the network interface (HTTPS, SNMP, SSH).  Intuitive charts are provided to assess current and historical performance of Tycho II, its GPS receiver and reference oscillator.

"The second-generation Tycho II provides our customers with a cost-effective, high-performance time and frequency standard without compromise to security and reliability." said Dan Paine, sales and support manager, EndRun Technologies.  "In addition, Tycho II uses the same network-centric core of our ultra-high performance Meridian II TimeBase.  This enables operation as a high-bandwidth, Network Time Protocol (NTP) server and optional IEEE-1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) Grandmaster."

The modular architecture allows customers to configure Tycho II to meet their specific application requirements.  The high-reliability design provides the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry.  Tycho 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 25 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 output 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
  • Optional IEEE-1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) Grandmaster with 8 nanosecond precision
  • Modularity enables custom configuration for up to 23 outputs

The Tycho II Precision TimeBase is available now.  Call +1-877-749-3878 for more information or go to http://www.endruntechnologies.com.
