CANADUINO 60kHz Atomic Clock Receiver Module V3 WWVB MSF JJY60
FREE Canada & USA shipping available (see details)
Note: Schematic and dimensions are of the new version V3 but photographs and documents are still of version V2.
CANADUINO Atomic Clock AM Receiver module V3 for 60kHz and 77.5kHz is the most advanced and best-equipped AM Atomic Clock Receiver module for DIY projects available today.
We designed this product around the awesome receiver chip from Micro Analog Systems (Finland). This module is in particular designed for use with microcontrollers in an operating voltage range of 2 to 15V, and standard logic levels 3.3 / 5V.
The kit includes a better quality, fine-tuned 60kHz antenna with a Q-factor of at least 100.
This module can receive the atomic clock AM signals transmitted by (for example):
– WWVB (US/Canada)
– JJY60 (Japan)
– MSF (England)
The advantages over other modules from other manufacturers:
– wide operating voltage range 2* to 15V
– 60 mm tuned high-gain, high-Q antenna
– current consumption <100µA (LEDs off)
– super high sensitivity of 0.4V (RMS)
– power down control pin
– fast start-up
– AGC control on/off
The kit needs soldering. Crystal, antenna, and pin header are not factory assembled.
If you don’t want to develop your own code, you can find many projects online, using our receiver kit, like for example Bruce Hall’s perfectly documented WWVB Clock with TFT colour display:

We highly recommend reading the official Wikipedia article about WWVB (Fort Collins) time signal to better understand how these clocks work.

Documentation CANADUINO Atomic Clock Receiver Kit
Documentation for the old model is available here.
* The module will work as expected with a voltage of as low as 2V. But the LEDs might not work as expected. We recommend a minimum voltage of 3V.
Note: We are still working on updating the pictures and documentation for the V3 module. Currently, version V2 is still shown.
