GPS time server development for the RAON superconducting radio-frequency test facility

An ion accelerator, RAON, is going to be built in Daejeon, Korea, by the Rare Isotope Science Project (RISP) team in the Institute of Basic Science (IBS). In this accelerator, various ions, such as uranium, proton, carbon and calcium, will be accelerated and fed to researchers for experiments. To produce the ion beams and to satisfy the requirements, many devices such as accelerating structures, RF power supplies and ion sources will be installed and controlled according to the predefined control logic. For correct control of such devices, time and clock synchronization is essential. A time synchronization test bed is planned for the RAON superconducting radio-frequency (SRF) test facility, and a flexible, low-cost gps-based time server was developed for that purpose. In this paper, detailed information on the developed GPS server and the test results will be described.
