Attention all NTP SyncServer customers. Are you aware of the upcoming GPS Rollover event happening on September 18th?

The Situation

In 2016, Microchip issued a Product Discontinuance Notice for their SyncServer S100 / S2xx / S3xx models:

  • SyncServer S100 / S2xx / S3xx models are no longer being manufactured effective 2016
  • SyncServer S100 / S2xx / S3xx models are End of Life (EOL) effective 2018

If these products are currently deployed in your production network(s), you may be at risk. Microchip and Empowered recommend replacing all discontinued models with the new SyncServer S600 / S650 as soon as possible to avoid any potential disruption.

  • Four GbE ports standard, all with patented NTP hardware timestamping
