Frequency And Phase Settling Time Measurements On PLL Circuits
By Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

Frequency hopping is one of the most common methods to avoid interference and to increase security. This application note provides basic information about frequency and phase settling time measurements and how the measurement is implemented inside modern phase noise analyzers, complete with measurement examples and explanations.

Spotlight On Oscillators
What The Heck Is An OCXO Oscillator?
Article | By Rob Rutkowski, Bliley Technologies, Inc.

OCXO stands for oven-controlled crystal (Xtal) oscillator. OCXOs are the top-performing type of quartz crystal oscillators at the expense of power. Other types of quartz crystal oscillators include TCXO, VCXO, and just plain XOs.

High Stability And Low Power Demand In A Compact Oscillator
White Paper | Greenray Industries, Inc.

One of the demands of manufacturers in RF markets is an oscillator that offers tight stability in a compact package. Greenray Industries offers the T75 Series TCXOs (temperature-compensated crystal oscillator) as a solution to meet these demands while offering low power consumption. 

Introduction To SAW Filter Theory And Design Techniques
White Paper | API Technologies Corp

Tradeoffs must be considered when selecting the best filter for system design applications. SAW filter technology offers reduced size and weight, which results in lower overall costs. This paper presents general SAW theory and performance information.

Understanding Low-Noise, Spread-Spectrum Crystal Oscillators
White Paper | Abracon Corporation

The present trend is to control EMI at the source using a single clock oscillator with spread-spectrum technology. This white paper discusses the theory of using low-noise, spread-spectrum crystal oscillator technology and how it can be used to better control EMI in new technologies.

Troubleshooting Ethernet Problems With Your Oscilloscope
Application Note | Tektronix, Inc.

This application note offers a brief overview of the physical layer and packet structure of Ethernet to help with troubleshooting. Other topics covered include setting up decoding on an oscilloscope, how to interpret serial bus data, and what triggering options are available on an oscilloscope with an Ethernet.

Frequency Control Products And HDTV Broadcasting Applications
Application Note | CTS Electronic Components

High-definition television (HDTV) enhances the viewing experience by offering wider pictures with much more detail and clarity than analog broadcasting video. This application note provides an overview of the fundamentals of HDTV broadcasting and touches on possible product solutions to enhance it.

Selecting Automotive-Grade Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors In Electric Vehicles
White Paper | Knowles Precision Devices DLI

The worldwide electric vehicle (EV) market is exploding in demand and mainstream adoption as governments push for fuel economy improvements and automotive companies look for new market opportunities. 

  Military PNT

May 18 and 19, 2020 | London, U.K.

Military PNT will host a range of presentations from both the commercial (NAVISP, UK GNSS) and military (GPS, NTS-3) graded capability, aiming to cover satellite navigation technology in depth, with topics such as PNT resilience, legal frameworks, a case study analysis on GNSS outages and how warfighters operate in denied and degraded environments. Bringing together requirement officers, procurement officials, R&D scientists, operators, and industry representatives, Military PNT is an essential date for all those in the field.
