Never put off until tomorrow what you can achieve today!
Time done the SMART way
The TimeCard allows any machine with a NIC capable of hardware time-stamping to be turned into a best-in-class Grandmaster time system.
You can use the TimeCard with or without our free Timebeat software.
We provide high-end OCXO and Rubidium options for market leading holdover.
And because the TimeCard can run on any server you can integrate with all of your normal tools and systems on Linux.
Support for the TimeCard is built into the Linux kernel so there's no special drivers to install.

Roll like a hyperscaler
Meta uses the TimeCard for clock synchronisation to provide time on millions of servers - Making their network clocks more precise for the Metaverse
Works with any software
The TimeCard operates with open sync stacks but it also pairs perfectly with Timebeat's enterprise grade sync software.
You can use Timebeat for free, but we also offer commercial support for your deployment.
If your company is doing a migration to the cloud, then checkout our cloud ready PTP+Squared time distribution mesh system.

TimeCards in the wild
Meta and the MetaverseCheck out the full article
Meta pushes the Timecard to its peak with cutting edge deployments "Implementing Precision Time Protocol (PTP) at Meta allows us to synchronize the systems that drive our products and services down to nanosecond precision."
"As we scale to more advanced systems on our way to building the next computing platform, the metaverse and AI, we need to ensure that our servers are keeping time as accurately and precisely as possible."
Home test rigs
The flexibility of the TimeCard makes them ideal in test rigs both professionally in the enterprise and at home in the lab. More and more systems require accurate time and sync, whether that be for audio and broadcast or automotive solutions the world of IoT and sync are coming together. This makes the TimeCard OCXO variant the perfect partner, at great value for money without diminishing performance it is ideal.

Our friend Jeff Geerling has been working out how to get one of the most accurate and precise clock sync systems to integrate with a Raspberry Pi. Not only does this make one of the most accurate Raspberry Pi's in the world but it also makes for a fun project that demonstrates absoltely anything can become an atomic clock with a TimeCard. Timebeat's own Lasse Johnsen also shows up and gives his take to Jeff.
