Abstract: The paper deals with development of time code generator and translator using microcontroller based user interface. TCG/T is used in order to provide time stamping and event synchronization in satellite stations. TCG (Time Code Generator) is a precision timing system that generates a GPS (Global positioning system) Synchronized serial time code with DS1307-RTC (Real time Clock) where the process takes place and gives a serial time output using the IRIG-A (Inter Range Instrumentation Group) time code.TCT (Time Code Translator) is capable of accepting the control signals from TCG and translate the serial time to parallel time using a CPLD (Complex Programmable Logic Device). TCG/T can be programmed to even translate and provide parallel time code to front end hardware for time stamping the satellite raw data ingested by real time data acquisition systems up to microsecond level.
Keywords: Time Code, CPLD, TCG, TCT, Microcontroller, GPS, DS1307-RTC, IRIG-A.

Scope of the Article: Logic, Functional Programming and Microcontrollers for IoT
