The Gillam Network Clock Distribution (GNCD) is a small synchronization distribution unit, easy to configure and to use. For E1 links.

The GNCD aims at amplifying and distributing a 2,048MHz or 2,048Mbit/s external synchronisation reference signal.

Its input interface complies with the two following recommendations:

·  For the 2,048MHz : G703 § 10 75 ohms or high impedance
·  For the 2,048Mbit/s : G703 § 6 75 ohms or high impedance

Each input A and B can accept 2MHz or 2Mbit/s input signals.

Outputs can be configured according to one of both following types:
·  2,048MHz G703 § 10 option 75 ohms.
·  2,048Mbit/s G703 § 6 option 75 ohms.

The output type is chosen by the operator with a configuration DIP switch located on each amplification card.

Outputs are valid according to the selected input type in the following way:
