Microsemi's PTSS Selected by Philippine National Agency

A supplier of semiconductor components to defense, aerospace, industrial and communications markets, Microsemi Corporation 's MSCC Precise Time Scale System (PTSS) has been chosen by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) for its Astronomical Observation and Time Service Unit (AOTSU).

PAGASA is a national agency, which provides services like weather forecasting, flood and typhoon warnings, astronomical, meteorological and climatological observations, time service and other information to shelter life and property.

PTSS is a timekeeping device, which is regarded as the most accurate and stable device available in the market currently. It consists of various 5071A atomic clocks, which are combined to establish and deliver the best possible estimation of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the basis for time synchronization worldwide. Microsemi's atomic clocks include around 75% of UTC by weight, which is suggestive of its dominant position in the industry.

The device is fit for national laboratories, which need the most demanding timing precision and applications where even nanosecond accuracy is important. Therefore, given its accuracy, the device can be used in different markets including metrology, scientific communications, security and industrial markets.

Therefore, leveraging PTSS' time accuracy, PAGASA's newest timing tool will be able to serve as the authoritative time server for Philippines and help to determine the Philippine Standard Time (PhST) by means of a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server system, thereby serving the needs of citizens and satisfying government's requirements.

Microsemi is a global provider of advanced timing and synchronization solutions and a comprehensive portfolio of precise time and frequency products. The company consistently introduces new and improved products that have enabled it to secure customer loyalty and boosted revenues. The new customer win will help in boosting its market share and thereby revenues.

Microsemi currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Better-ranked stocks in the space include Amazon.com AMZN , Majesco Entertainment Co. COOL and Open Text Corporation OTEX , all sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
