GPS Timing Distribution for TETRA Base Stations
A major blue chip manufacturer of TETRA radio systems required a new design capable of carrying the GPS RF signals from antenna to remote base stations in tunnel networks. ViaLite provided a rapid development and qualification cycle for a new product for use in hazardous environments. The new system is now used in the customers TETRA network for distribution of timing reference signals. This new system had to work in high levels of electrical noise including RF and high voltage/current switching transients. The demanding environmental performance requirements for shock, vibration and temperature were all part of the customer requirement. ViaLite offered the advantages of off-the-shelf timescales with a system that met the customers exact requirements.
This is an example of ViaLite‘s flexibility when undertaking development and how by working hand-in-hand with customer engineering teams a new product can be integrated seamlessly with the customer’s equipment.
