The Extreme Energy Events Project is an experiment devoted to the study of the Extensive Atmospheric Showers(EAS) which consists of a network of Multigap Resistive Plate Chambers (MRPCs) muon telescopes distributedover a very large area ∼310^5^2. It requires a precise time synchronization to correlate the informationcollected from each single detector. The data acquisition system of each telescope is equipped with a trigger unitand a GPS receiver to perform precision timing of events. The Global Positioning System (GPS) unit provides theone pulse per second signal (1PPS) which is used to create a timestamp in UTC time. A novel VME trigger unit forthe EEE telescopes was developed, including an embedded GPS engine for timing application. The trigger/GPSunit is presented, including some preliminary measurements of its time resolu
