PCIe-GPS Network Card for GPS

The Masterclock PCIe-GPS card receives reference time from atomic clocks orbiting in GPS (Global Positioning System) satellites to provide the most accurate time and date information. When locked to GPS (and the PCIe), your PC accuracy is ±2 milliseconds with reference to the source.  High-stability oscillator options increase holdover accuracy to up to ±250ms/year. 

Features

  • Provides legally traceable time to UTC
  • Synchronizes PC to ± 2 milliseconds of GPS reference
  • Provides millisecond accuracy to Windows and Linux applications
  • Microsecond accuracy achievable through API development
  • Fully configurable time zone and daylight saving time offsets
  • PCIe revision 2.0 – slot compatible X1 through X16
  • LED status indicator

Specifications
