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 you realize that the oscillator will not be able to maintain that frequency. This article covers multiple sources of frequency instability.

Quartz Crystal Based Oscillators: Low Phase Noise Characteristics
By Steve Fry, Greenray Industries, Inc.

This white paper discusses measuring techniques for expressing oscillator phase noise, the benefits of using crystal oscillators for clean signals, and how to use crystal oscillators to improve sensitivity in measurement systems.

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.

Application And Measurement Of Ultra-Low-Noise Oscillators
By Garry Thorp, RF engineer, Pascall Electronics Ltd

Low phase noise signal sources are an essential component of many high-performance electronic systems, and in almost all of these, the output frequencies are derived from one or more crystal oscillators, by means including frequency multiplication and division, phase-locked loop (PLL), direct digital synthesis (DDS) etc.

Reintroduction To Gunn Oscillators
 

Despite being an older technology, Gunn oscillators have been playing a unique role in replacing the tube to generate low to medium level microwave power within the 2 to 140 GHz frequency range. New engineers may have some opportunities to use this technology due to the birth of three terminal-based devices such as HBT, MOSFET, and pHEMT.
