Technical Notes and Briefs: In-Field Coax Connector Test Using the Path Align-R A Path Align-R test set can be used in lieu of expensive cable sweeping equipment. Simply attach the Path Align-R to each end of the connectorized coax and measure the “Cable Loss” at the specific frequency the cable will see during operation. Also, if more than one coax is going to be attached to the tower, you can compare the “Cable Loss” of each coax before they are installed. pdf - 205 KB

Application Notes: Student Records—Increased Security and Authentication with Time Synchronization Synchronizing a network to one time source immediately improves an education institution’s ability to authenticate and verify the creation and alteration of documents - critical for protecting student records. Synchronizing time across a network produces verified time stamps, on which the authenticity of digital signatures depends. The time stamp must be secure, accurate, and reliable—both for purposes of synchronization and to protect the confidentiality of student records. A GPS NTP time server is a simple network element to support compliance to FERPA and similar requirements pdf - 111 KB

White Papers: Simplifying the Path Alignment of Microwave Communication Systems

Wherever microwave links exist, the path between antennas has always required accurate antenna alignment. This process requires highly trained tower crews to physically align the antennas as well as ground technicians and sophisticated, expensive, and complex test equipment to monitor the results. The process of optimizing the transmission path of microwave communication systems is about to undergo a significant development in process, simplification and cost benefit without compromising performance or accuracy. The process can now be accomplished with the use of the Pendulum (formerly XL Microwave) Path Align-R Microwave Antenna Path Alignment Test Sets. Tower installation crews can now perform the entire alignment process themselves, up the tower, at the antenna, without the need of additional ground technicians, equipment, or indeed, even the waveguides or radios installed.

Application Notes: Time Synchronization's Role in Real-Time Trading GPS-enabled network time synchronization enables real-time trading of financial instruments by providing secure, accurate, and reliable time for events across the trading network. When an event occurs and is logged into the realtime database, the time associated with the event is accurate to national and international time standards. Synchronizing the time at which a transaction is executed from one system to another allows these systems to properly process transactions accurately. pdf - 106 KB

Presentations and Articles: Navigating With More Than Just GPS

The resurgence of the automotive industry has come with strong buyer interest in technology to improve safety, convenience and awareness in the automobile. GPS is one such technology that has strong consumer demand. While a GPS receiver is at the heart of any navigation system, applications for GPS extend to a wide range of automotive systems. Virtually anything with a sensor can take advantage of GPS data such as date, time, precise frequency, altitude, heading, velocity partly because it is very accurate and independent of any other system. But GPS is not the only satellite in the sky anymore. More and more Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are being developed and deployed. Receivers are available to make use of multiple systems that, when used together, improves accuracy and reliability.
