Hazards from willful jamming and spoofing of UNITED STATE Global Positioning System (GPS) signals, in addition to cybersecurity threats to critical facilities, show the requirement for safe as well as effective time and also regularity systems that make certain continuing operability and also efficiency. Silicon Chip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP) today introduced that its SyncServer S650 M-Code time server has obtained approval from the U.S. Flying Force GPS Directorate of the Los Angeles Flying Force Base for usage on behalf of military interaction networks, radars as well as systems.

M-Code, an encrypted army signal transmitted in GENERAL PRACTITIONER frequency bands, is required by congressional required for goal essential Department of Protection (DoD) applications in hostile settings. Silicon chip’s SyncServer S650 M-Code equipped time and regularity web server gives a protected, exact, flexible platform for integrating mission-critical digital systems and also instrumentation. For DoD programs needing jam-resistant, encrypted time as well as frequency signals from the GPS armed forces M-Code Precise Positioning Service (PPS), the SyncServer S650 M-Code is a secure time and also frequency tool with a totally integrated M-code GPS receiver.

” As the very first time and also frequency instrument allowing DoD compliance for M-Code-based GENERAL PRACTITIONER systems, this innovation demonstrates Silicon chip’s continuing commitment and investment in the safety and security of time as well as regularity systems,” said Randy Brudzinski, vice frequency, timing as well as head of state Solutions organisation device. “This moment server stands for a new level of security solidifying built on Silicon chip’s tested industrial SyncServer S650 time server that offers extreme timing precision, flexibility and also protection.”

The SyncServer S650 M-Code equipped time and also frequency tool is a rack placed web server device that synchronizes to the atomic clocks aboard GPS satellites by means of M-Code. The S650 M-Code leverages brand-new technology to offer enhanced anti-jamming defense and additional hardening versus spoofing, providing greater precision, and also enhancing operator ease-of-use for essential loading.

Harder to jam than business CA-Code GENERAL PRACTITIONERS, M-Code provides an extra secure signal than the business CA-Code or SAASM P( Y) signal, with higher precision. The tool likewise is less complicated for drivers to fill crypto keys.

The SyncServer S650 M-Code can utilize Integrated circuit’s FlexPort ™ innovation for multiport, individual definable outcome signal setups for Inter-Range Instrumentation Group (IRIG) timecodes, pulses as well as a range of signal types essential for army interaction, radars as well as network system synchronization. This is combined with Integrated circuit’s NTP Reflector ™ innovation for robust security, precision and dependability of network-based time services such as Network Time Method (NTP) as well as Accuracy Time Method (PTP). Various other features consist of:

4 common GbE ports, all with trademarked NTP equipment time marking, with two added 10 GbE ports optional
Has most prominent timing signal inputs/outputs conventional in the base timing I/O component (IRIG B, 10 MHz, 1PPS).
Web-based monitoring with high safety cipher suite.
Rubidium atomic clock or OCXO oscillator upgrades.
Superior 10 MHz low stage sound choices.

Integrated circuit has actually been supplying the SyncServer S650 to integrate organisation vital and also goal critical operations, across all industry sectors, considering that its business introduction in 2016.


The SyncServer S650 M-Code is supported by Microchip technical assistance.
