The Extreme Energy Events Project is an experiment devoted to the study of the Extensive Atmospheric Showers (EAS) which consists of a network of Multigap Resistive Plate Chambers (MRPCs) muon telescopes distributed over a very large area, similar to 3times10(5) km(2). It requires a precise time synchronization to correlate the information collected from each single detector. The data acquisition system of each telescope is equipped with a trigger unit and a GPS receiver to perform precision timing of events. The Global Positioning System (GPS) unit provides the one pulse per second signal (1PPS) which is used to create a timestamp in UTC time. A novel VME trigger unit for the EEE telescopes was developed, including an embedded GPS engine for timing application. The trigger/GPS unit is presented, including some preliminary measurements of its time resolution.

Abstract

The Extreme Energy Events Project is an experiment devoted to the study of the Extensive Atmospheric Showers (EAS) which consists of a network of Multigap Resistive Plate Chambers (MRPCs) muon telescopes distributed over a very large area, similar to 3times10(5) km(2). It requires a precise time synchronization to correlate the information collected from each single detector. The data acquisition system of each telescope is equipped with a trigger unit and a GPS receiver to perform precision timing of events. The Global Positioning System (GPS) unit provides the one pulse per second signal (1PPS) which is used to create a timestamp in UTC time. A novel VME trigger unit for the EEE telescopes was developed, including an embedded GPS engine for timing application. The trigger/GPS unit is presented, including some preliminary measurements of its time resolution.
