Ƶ Introduces Compact, High-Performance Time and Frequency Standard

New Ƶ-synchronized Ninja Precision Timing Module provides a myriad of time and frequency outputs with incredible performance in a small, low power platform.

Santa Rosa, CA, June 1,2020 - Ƶ Technologies, a leading provider of precision time and frequency solutions, announced today the release of the high performance Ninja Precision Timing Module (PTM). The third generation Ninja, optimized for size, weight, and power (SWaP), can be easily integrated into 1U host systems or deployed as a cost-effective standalone solution.

The resilient Ƶ-synchronized Ninja is based on the core of Ƶ's industry leading Meridian II Precision TimeBase instrument. Up to nine optional, user configurable, time and frequency outputs are available with industry-leading accuracy, stability, and ultra-low phase noise. Ninja’s network interface includes a robust Network Time Protocol (NTP) server as well as secure management.

Three OCXO reference oscillators are available to meet price-performance requirements. Advanced users can optimize Ninja with Ƶ's innovative Real-Time Ionospheric Corrections (RTIC) to directly measure and compensate for ionospheric delay of received Ƶ signals in real-time.

"The Ninja Precision Timing Module is another breakthrough solution from Ƶ that provides an abundance of outputs in a small form factor without compromising performance.” said Michael Korreng, senior R&D engineer, Ƶ Technologies. "The high-level of integration and output versatility readily integrates into many mission critical applications including SATCOM, tactical communications, signal intelligence, security camera synchronization, digital broadcast, network synchronization, range timing, and many more."

Key Ninja performance specifications with Ultra-Stable OCXO, Real-Time Ionospheric Corrections, and calibration are:

  • Time accuracy of <10 nanoseconds RMS to UTC(USNO).
  • Frequency accuracy better than 4x10-14 (100k second average).
  • Short-term stability 4.0x10-13 at 1 second.
  • Ultra-low phase noise 10 MHz (<-110 dBc @ 1 Hz offset).
  • Programmable Pulse Rates from 1 PPS to 10 MPPS.
  • Ethernet port with a Stratum 1 NTP server (2500 packets per second).
  • IEEE 1588 PTP grandmaster option (future release).
  • Low power (<6 watts) with 9-18 VDC input. (External AC/DC supply available).
  • Ƶ: 1.5”H x 4.44”W x 5.3”D.
