Multi-GNSS Disciplined Oscillator Model GF-8701NEW

For Timing

TCXO equipped High sensitivity Multi-GNSS Disciplined Oscillator which achieves the world's best-in-class small size and low price.

GF-8701 outputs 1PPS synchronized with UTC as well as 10MHz coherent to 1PPS.
GF-8701 can receive concurrent GPS, GLONASS, QZSS (Quasi-Zenith Satellite System) and SBAS signals.
GF-8701 is suitable for various applications thanks to small packaging. For example radio communications, network communications and Grandmaster clock applications for multimedia broadcast.
