WAVE Timing Link

  • Below 40-fs timing jitter
  • 100-fs long-term timing drift (over 8 hours)
  • Tens of km fiber link length possible
  • Any frequency up to 10 GHz possible
  • High flexibility in terms of clock type, clock frequency and transfer length
  • Robust and fully automated operation
  • Multiple frequencies can be transmitted simultaneously e.g. maser frequency at 100MHz or 10MHz with 1pps

Clock or RF signal transfer over long distances, such as:

  • GPS distribution
  • Maser distribution
  • Atomic clock distribution
  • Particle accelerators
  • Radio telescope arrays


Cycle’s fully-automated WAVE LINK precisely distributes and transfers high-quality RF clock signals to remote locations, which can be even tens of kilometers away. WAVE LINK is actively stabilized and compensates any changes of optical path length caused by e.g. temperature variations. Therefore, multiplexing of other signals along the fiber is also possible.
