PH8 PHS8 GPS leap seconds | Thales IoT Developer Community

Hi,

I have a device that includes the PHS8 GPS.  I am using this for an application that requires time synchronisation between several units.  Therefore I would like to know exactly how the PHS8 handles leap seconds.

Does the PHS8 unit store 'last known' leap seconds for the next cold-start?

I understand that leap second correction is only seond once every 20mins (appox) and I cannot afford for there to be a significant jump in time when the first leap second correction message is received.

I hope this question makes sense, and look forward to an answer as soon as possible!

Thanks.

James.
