A Leap Second will be added by the world's timekeepers on December 31, 2005. The leap second insertion increases the length of the last minute of the UTC day to 61 seconds. ** The Effect of Leap Seconds on Symmetricom products ** Symmetricom has completed simulation testing of all of our time and frequency receivers, time and frequency processor modules and network time servers to characterize their behaviors, and then appropriately distribute the leap second information. This is not just our most recent products, but also those that have been out in the field for a quite a while.
