Timing and Synchronization

Solutions to Generate, Distribute & Apply Precise Time

Timing and synchronization are indispensable in our increasingly digital, networked world. Precise, accurate time enables virtually all infrastructures such as data centers, wired and wireless communications, financial exchanges, industrial networks, smart power grid, and other secure communications. Wireless networks, for example, rely on highly accurate timing and synchronization for smooth cell-to-cell transfers of the mass of voice, video and mobile data deluging the networks on a daily basis. Precise timing is similarly vital for financial networks processing billions of dollars in transactions daily.

Achieving highly accurate precision time is no easy feat from a technology perspective, so it’s important to find a resource you can trust. Our end-to-end timing solutions generate, distribute and apply precise time for multiple industries, including communications, aerospace/defense, IT infrastructure, financial services, industrial and more. Microsemi customers range from communications service providers and network equipment manufacturers to governments and their suppliers worldwide.
