Mudal IRIG time code is made up of repeating frames, each containing 60 or bits. Work on these standards started in Octoberand the original standards were accepted in Not all formats include all fields. Inter-range instrumentation group time codescommonly known as IRIG time codesare standard formats for transferring timing information.
Bits are assigned little-endian within fields. Serial formatted time codes are used to efficiently interface the timing system output with the user system. ORG are not an endorsement nor recommendation of products, services or other. A three-digit suffix specifies the type and frequency of the carrier, and which optional information is included:.
Binary-coded decimal day of year, hours, minutes, and for some formats seconds and fractions are always included. Thus, two marker bits in a row P 0 followed by P r marks the beginning of a frame. The following table contains standard code formats defined in IRIG standard The frame encodes the time of the leading edge of the frame marker bit. Every 10th bit starting with bit 9, 19, 29, For example, the IEEE standard defines functions for bits 60— The bits are numbered from 0 through 59 or Generally, groups of 4 bits are used to encode BCD digits.
The use of the IRIG standard is to provide a standard protocol for serial time codes that are generated for correlation of data with time. IRIG Standard added year information to format. The different timecodes defined in the Standard have alphabetic designations. These digital codes are typically amplitude modulated on an audio sine wave carrier or transmitted as fast rise-time TTL signals.
Error detection can be achieved by comparing consecutive frames to see if they encode consecutive timestamps. Views Read Edit View history. Bit 0 is the frame marker bit P r.
For example, the signal designated as B is deciphered as follows: Standardization of time codes is necessary to ensure system compatibility among the various ranges, ground tracking networks, spacecraft and missile projects, data reduction facilities, and international cooperative projects.
Normally used combinations are J through J, and baudand through J through baud. At the start of each bit time, the IRIG time code enables a signal sends a carrier, raises the DC signal level, or transmits Manchester 1 bits. Related Articles.

This permits a year count from to Therefore, a user wanting to start with year can count to year The remaining 18 bits are for control functions. There are 7 bits for seconds, 7 for minutes, 6 for hours, 10 for days, 4 for tenths of seconds, and 9 for year information between position identifiers P5 and P6 to complete the BCD word. An index marker occurs between the decimal digits in each sub-word, except for the tenths of seconds, to provide for visual separation. The BCD time-of-year code recycles yearly.

Optionally this binary data stream can be modulated onto a sine wave carrier of a particular frequency. The image below shows both types of signal, the unmodulated signal in the upper area, and the modulated signal in the lower area: Since the logic levels of the raw data stream are often represented by DC voltage levels, the unmodulated code frames are also called DC Level Shift signals, or DCLS signals. Due to its nature as digital signals the DCLS time codes have well-defined slopes. Also, the propagation delays of digital line drivers and receivers are usually pretty constant, so it is easy to generate an accurate trigger signal from a DCLS slope and thus yield a high accuracy from a received DCLS time code. For modulated signals the exact start of a signal frame is bound to the zero-crossing of the carrier signal, i. On the receiver side it requires much more effort to detect the exact zero crossing point of a modulated sine-wave signal than capturing a digital slope. Also, modulated time codes often use filters, transformers, automatic gain control AGC circuits, etc.
