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 ICM720T Multi GNSS, Mini-T GG, ICM SMT 360 Multi GNSS and the RES SMT 360 GG (last two available also on a carrier board).

ICM720 Multi-GNSS Timing Module

Secured Dual Band (L1/L5) GNSS Timing Module with Nanosecond Accuracy

Unparalleled accuracy to meet the stringent synchronization needs of the next-generation networks in various industry verticals including 5G X-Haul, Smart Grid, Data Center, SATCOM, Calibration Services and Industrial Automation applications.

With dual-band multi-constellation capability, ICM720 reduces the timing error under clear skies to 5 nano second without the need for an external GNSS correction service.

Provides higher power L5 signals (twice as much power as L1) with its greater bandwidth, and advanced signal design lowers the risk of interference and improves multi-path protection. Multi-band capability allows it to compensate for the ionosphere error while reducing the timing error under clear skies to few nanoseconds without further need for correction.

Key Features:

    • Nanosecond-level timing accuracy (5 ns 1-sigma)
    • Dual Band (L1 and L5) Multi constellation GNSS timing module
    • Protection against jamming and spoofing with Trimble’s Smart GNSS Assurance
    • Advanced Security features that include secure boot, secure interface and T-RAIM
    • Supports industry standard protocols such as NMEA and TSIP for configuration and Control
    • Advanced Multi-path Mitigation capabilities to distinguish and process directly received signal from reflected signals

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

Trimble’s ICM SMT 360™ module is a multi-GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU and Galileo ready) receiver, optimized to generate precise timing signal. The ICM SMT 360™ is designed to cover the full spectrum of small cells – residential femtocell to rural microcell.

The ICM SMT 360™ generates pulse per second (PPS) and a precise 10MHz reference clock for synchronization of small cells.

  • Multi-GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Beidou & Galileo ready)
  • Holdover
  • Assisted GPS (A-GPS)
  • PPS and 10MHz outputs
  • Extended Temperature range (-40°C to +85°C)
  • Timing pulse synchronized to within 15 nanoseconds (one sigma) of GNSS/UTC

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
