TCR1000 - Time Code Reader PCI Card

The TCR1000 is a universal voltage time code reader plug-in style card for both 3.3V and 5V PCI busses on IBM-PC compatible computer systems. The card is designed to synchronize time in a PC or Server from a master time code reference. In addition, it can be used as a SMPTE or IRIG-B/B1 linear time code (LTC) reader under software control. The reader is compatible with 24/25/30 fps NDF (Non Drop Frame) SMPTE linear time code, as well as IRIG-B pulse-width time code format and the IRIG-B(1) 1 kHz amplitude modulated time code format. Time code is detected automatically. Optional software provides an NTP reference for your network.
