Multi-GNSS Disciplined Oscillator Model GF-8703NEW

For Timing

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

GF-8703 outputs 1PPS synchronized with UTC as well as 10MHz coherent to 1PPS.
GF-8703 can receive concurrent GPS, GLONASS, QZSS (Quasi-Zenith Satellite System) and SBAS signals.
GF-8703 is suitable for various applications thanks to small packaging. For example radio communications, network communications and Grandmaster clock applications for multimedia broadcast.

Features

  • Generates UTC-synchronized 1PPS (pulse per second) and continuously disciplined 10 MHz

    ・Reduces errors in digital communication by providing highly accurate and stable frequency
  • Coherent behavior between time pulse (jitter less 1PPS) and frequency (10 MHz)

  • Built-in high-sensitivity timing Multi-GNSS receiver with improved noise tolerance for harsh environments

    ・Receives concurrent GPS, GLONASS, QZSS (Quasi-Zenith Satellite System) and SBAS signals
    ・Flexible antenna installation locations thanks to high sensitivity and twice the number of satellites in view as opposed to GPS-only positioning
    ・Reduces effects of internal and external noise thanks to Active Anti-Jamming and Advanced Multipath Mitigation
  • Supports Holdover function with the world's smallest size

    ・Even if GNSS falls into unlock, the FURUNO GNSSDO will predict oscillator behavior and automatically make corrections thanks to FURUNO's Advanced Oscillator Control Function
    ・Continuously outputs highly accurate and stable 1PPS and frequency
    ・Expands GNSSDO applications for many devices which in the past could not use GNSSDO thanks to miniaturized size and reasonable price
  • Support compatible design depending on customer's requirement

    Supports the same output format as well as pin-compatible design (GF-8701GF-8702, GF-8703)
    ・GNSSDO can be customized to meet unique customer requirements
