Micro Analog Systems Oy has just announced the availability of its EB6180B1COB module for Time Code Reception (RCC).
The new, tiny, time-signal receiver module comprises of a ferrite antenna and a small PCB that includes a MAS6180B1 AM receiver IC, accompanied with the necessary filter crystal and capacitor components. The MAS6180B1 AM receiver IC converts the time code signal into series of digital pulses which can be directly processed by an appropriate digital circuitry such as microcontroller unit (MCU). From the signal information such as time, date and daylight saving can be easily retrieved.
The use of a ready-made module gives users a cost-effective solution with an optimized RF design. The included, tuned, ferrite antenna increases the value of this module even further.
Different versions are available for the 77.5kHz German DCF77 time signal and the 60kHz US WWVB, British MSF and Japanese JJY60.
