Symmetricom, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a worldwide leader in precise time and frequency technologies that accelerate the deployment and enable the management of next generation networks, today announced that Dr. Samuel Stein, chief technologist, and Dr. Robert Lutwak, senior scientist for Symmetricom's Timing, Test & Measurement Division, are invited speakers at the 34th Annual NIST Time and Frequency Metrology Seminar, Tuesday, June 2 - Friday, June 5, 2009.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — May 27, 2009 — Symmetricom, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a worldwide leader in precise time and frequency technologies that accelerate the deployment and enable the management of next generation networks, today announced that Dr. Samuel Stein, chief technologist, and Dr. Robert Lutwak, senior scientist for Symmetricom’s Timing, Test & Measurement Division, are invited speakers at the 34th Annual NIST Time and Frequency Metrology Seminar, Tuesday, June 2 – Friday, June 5, 2009. Located at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Laboratories, the 4-day seminar will discuss characteristics of clocks and oscillators, making precise time and frequency measurements and synchronizing precision time systems.

WHO: Dr. Samuel Stein, chief technologist and Dr. Robert Lutwak, senior scientist at Symmetricom’s Timing, Test & Measurement Division

WHAT: 34th Annual NIST Time and Frequency Metrology Seminar

WHEN: Tuesday, June 2 – Friday, June 5, 2009

WHERE: NIST Boulder Laboratories, 325 Broadway, Boulder, CO 80305

Dr. Stein will be presenting, “Digital Measurements of PM-Noise of Precision Oscillators” on Wednesday, June 3, from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. MDT. Digital phase noise measurements are made by converting RF signals to digital samples. The use of numerical techniques for phase detection and analysis improves measurement accuracy and allows simultaneous evaluation of phase noise and short-term stability. Prior to joining Symmetricom in 2006, Dr. Stein was the founder, president and CEO of Timing Solutions Corporation. He has over 30 years of experience in the time and frequency field and has made numerous contributions to precision time measurement technology and new time transfer techniques.

Dr. Lutwak will be presenting “An Introduction to Atomic Frequency Standards” on Thursday, June 4, from 8:15 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. MDT. Atomic frequency standards provide the ultimate source of accuracy and stability for all modern communications, navigation and time-keeping systems. His presentation will have a particular emphasis on mature technologies including rubidium oscillators, cesium beam frequency standards and hydrogen masers. Dr. Lutwak worked for NIST prior to joining Symmetricom’s Technology Realization Center. He has led projects developing next generation atomic clock technology for deployment onboard the GPS-NAVSTAR satellite constellation as well as chip-scale atomic clocks, 100 times smaller and lower power than existing technologies.
