Symmetricom Expands Test Set Portfolio with New High-Performance Test Probe

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Symmetricom®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a worldwide leader in precision time and frequency technologies, today announced the launch of 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.

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.

The 3120A Test Probe comes with easy-to-use, intuitive software to take measurements and conduct analysis. The 3120A Phase Noise Test Software displays results in seconds without the need for external data processing.

"The Symmetricom 3120A is an excellent low cost phase noise test probe that customers can use with their existing PC equipment to achieve state-of-the-art measurements," said Sam Stein, chief scientist for Symmetricom. "It is an ideal extension to Symmetricom's line of phase noise products." Symmetricom will introduce the 3120A Test Probe at the Precise Time and Time Interval (PTTI) Systems and Applications Meeting, which takes place on November 26 - 29 in Reston, Virginia. Symmetricom will be at booth # 6 conducting demonstrations and providing information about the 3120A Test Probe, in addition to Symmetricom's other timing and synchronization products.

In addition, Dr. Samuel Stein will present the following tutorial on Monday, November 26 at PTTI: Who: Dr. Samuel Stein, chief scientist, SymmetricomWhat: Time and Frequency Measurement Theory and Bench-top DemonstrationsWhen: Monday, November 26, 2012, 2:15 pm About Symmetricom, Inc.Symmetricom (NASDAQ:SYMM), a world leader in precise time solutions, sets the world's standard for time.
