How-to Guide
Master Sync and Master Clock Reference Timing within a Facility

Adjusting system timing and achieving synchronization is one of the most fundamental and critical procedures in a facility. With facilities operating with multi-formats, learn how the Tektronix SPG8000 and TG8000 can be configured to serve the multi-formats needs of a facility.

Application Note
Global Positioning System as a Master Clock and Reference Signal

GPS can provide a reliable means to provide master clock and timing reference signals from a sync pulse generator such as the Tektronix SPG8000 with the GPS option. This method of synchronization allows for multiple facilities around the world to all derive their reference signals from the same system.
