This frequency source covers the 3 to 18 GHz frequency range and features a self-checking function, a controlling power supply, and signal control. It has a 1 kHz frequency step, >10dBm output level, <3dB amplitude flatness at room temperature (<5dB at high and low temperatures), >50dB stray rejection, and >40dB harmonic rejection. For more information on its electrical and mechanical specifications, download the datasheet.
These voltage controlled oscillators feature gold substrates, low junction temperatures, added temperature stability, high output power, and lowpass filtering. Several different models are available with varying tuning ranges and output powers, each with rugged construction for demanding commercial and military applications.
The Space Qualified Crystal Oscillator is a small temperature compensated VHF oscillator, which incorporates a Z-swept, premium Q, synthetic resonator per MIL-PRF-3098.
This OCXO (oven controlled crystal oscillator) covers the 8 MHz to 100 MHz frequency range and features ultra-high stability (- to + 0.2 ppb over -10oC to +60oC), a low aging rate (- to + 0.2 ppb/day, + 0.03 ppm/year), a low allan variance (- up to 3E-12 at 1s), and since wave or HCMOS outputs.
This digitally controlled oscillator features high speed, low phase noise, and high accuracy. It operates in the 2.0 to 18.0 GHz frequency range and has been designed to operate in military ground or airborne environments. Frequency drift over the operating temperature range is minimized through internal digital calibration techniques. Additional information can be found on the outline drawing (link below).
Whether flying at 40,000’ watching videos online or at 500’ watching over-the-hill radar, it’s the picture that counts not the display. And vibration from rotary wing engines, weapons fire or simple high altitude turbulence can blur radar images or cause satellite links to loose lock breaking your focus.
This precision TCXO/VCTCXO acts as the timing reference in radios, satellite terminals, and handheld test equipment. It is designed for environmentally hostile conditions – operation under vibration and temperature extremes – and with the US military’s Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) initiative in mind.
NIC’s line of crystal oscillators provide high performance in both environmentally benign and rugged conditions. This page includes information on their VCTCXO and TCXO product offerings.
