Magnetron Theory Of Operation
By CPI Beverly Microwave Division

A magnetron is a high-power microwave oscillator in which the potential energy of an electron cloud near the cathode is converted into RF energy in a series of cavity resonators. The resonant frequency of a microwave cavity is determined by the physical dimension of the resonator together with the reactive effect of any perturbations to the inductive or capacitive portion of the equivalent circuit.

5 Common Causes Of Frequency Drift In Crystal Oscillators And Their Solution
By Bliley Technologies

Setting the initial frequency of an oscillator to the most precise values can be frustrating when the oscillator will not be able to maintain that frequency. Download the full paper for a discussion on the five most common causes of frequency drift, and how the OCXO helps overcome these challenges.

Oscillator Jitter Basics
By MtronPTI

Noise elements that cause clock signal periods to vary are known as jitter. This white paper from MtronPTI presents in-depth information on the definition of jitter, different types of jitter sources, how to measure jitter, and how to correlate jitter from supplier to customer.
