Symmetricom small form factor probe tests phase noise and allan deviation

Symmetricom, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM) said it has launched a new high-performance, low-cost measurement solution, the Symmetricom 3120A Phase Noise Test Probe.

The latest addition to Symmetricom’s state-of-the-art timing test set portfolio, the 3120A Test Probe comes in a convenient small form factor and measures Phase Noise and Allan Deviation as part of the base hardware kit. Additional software options are available to measure AM noise floor and signal statistics such as HDEV, TDEV, MDEV and jitter, and for use as a frequency counter and for mask testing.

Unlike traditional solutions that are desktop-bound due to size and weight, Symmetricom’s 3120A Test Probe is small enough to be carried around from location-to-location, and inexpensive enough to have at each bench. Whether used on a busy manufacturing floor, in a tight server closet or in R&D labs, the 3120A helps characterize reference clocks, used in high-performance applications, achieve the highest accuracy without requiring calibration.

Symmetricom, a world leader in precise time solutions, generates, distributes and applies precise time for the communications, aerospace/defense, IT infrastructure and metrology industries. For more information, visit: http://www.symmetricom.com
