Leap Second Corrections

Posted in Applications

Did you know you can simulate leap second corrections with LabSat?

A leap second is a second added to Universal Time (UTC) in order to synchronize atomic clocks with astronomical time to within 0.9 seconds. This event happens once every couple of years and it is up to you to make sure your devices' firmware and algorithims manage these time changes correctly.

You can easily simulate a leap second event on your bench using a LabSat GPS simulator. To download leap second recordings and/or scenarios to replay using a LabSat simply fill out the form below. You will then be redirected to a secure page where you can download the relevant file.
