New Features Enable Customers to Improve Performance of Radar Systems, Satellite Communications and Stock Trading SystemsALISO VIEJO, Calif., Dec. 5, 2017 — (PRNewswire) — Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced new hardware and software options for its popular SyncServer S600 series of time servers and instruments. The recent enhancements improve time synchronization over enterprise Ethernet networks and supply timing signals for improved military radar operations and satellite uplink communications.
"The SyncServer S600 series provides highly accurate, reliable and secure time for a variety of applications, not the least of which are the extremely precise low phase noise 10 MHz signals used in military radars and satellite uplinks," said Paul Skoog, senior product line manager at Microsemi. "We're committed to helping our customers improve the performance of their systems by improving the performance of ours. These high-quality timing signals enable radars to track difficult targets as well as to improve the quality and data throughput of satellite communications systems."
Enterprise and financial customers also look to the SyncServer S600 series to meet the timing and synchronization needs of their rapidly evolving networks, particularly for compliance purposes such as the European MiFID II directive, which specifies highly stringent time accuracy requirements for stock trading systems. Also applicable for laboratories and test and measurement companies, this latest release of Microsemi's S600 hardware and software includes support for the IEEE™ 1588 multiport, multi-profile Precision Time Protocol (PTP), which allows the S600 to operate as an independent grandmaster clock on each Ethernet port—delivering cost savings and network deployment flexibility to customers. This is coupled with a new 10GbE interface to easily interoperate with a wider variety of network and stock trading topologies.
The newly enhanced SyncServer S600 and S650 can be equipped with two 10 GbE Ethernet small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) ports ideal for customers needing to maximize PTP grandmaster performance in a cost-effective 1 rack unit (1U) chassis. In addition, the S650 can measure the accuracy of PTP hardware slaves that are synchronized to the S650 grandmaster by way of a new external 1 pulse per second (PPS) measurement option. The combination of these devices' new hardware and software features support Microsemi's expanding leadership position as a cost-effective enterprise PTP grandmaster provider delivering accurate and reliable time to critical systems.
Microsemi's SyncServer S600 series meets the time and frequency requirements of multiple vertical markets, particularly the global military radar market, which is estimated to reach $10 billion by 2024 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.6 percent between 2016 and 2024 according to market research firm Variant Market Research. The firm also identifies how radar in military applications is widely used for air traffic control, early warning detection of missiles, navigation at sea and surveillance of air and ground. The versatile SyncServer S600 series meets the needs of today's demanding timing requirements and scales to meet the needs of the future.
Microsemi's SyncServer S600 series is available now, with the low phase noise signals, 10 GbE Ethernet and multiport PTP options available beginning Dec. 21, 2017.
