Vectron, a Knowles company, offers the OX-208 high stability ovenized crystal oscillator designed to be capable of aging rates of 0.15 ppb/day, and temperature stabilities of 0.8 ppb over an industrial temperature range. Operating at a frequency range of 5 to 20 MHz, this oscillator is ideal for holdover referencing, test equipment, synthesizers, military communication equipment, and digital switching.
The VT-860 is a temperature compensated crystal oscillator featuring tight stability and a small form factor 2.0mm x 1.6mm x 0.7mm package. This TCXO operates within the 13 MHz to 52 MHz frequency range, and produces a stability of +/-0.5ppm across the industrial temperature range of -40°C to 85°C.
MtronPTI offers the new XO7013 series of ultra-low phase noise VCXOs designed for use in telecommunication, instrumentation, avionics, and wireless applications. With LVCMOS output available, an absolute pull range greater than +/-20ppm, and operation over the -40 to +85 C temperature range, the XO7013 series is able to achieve industry leading phase-noise performance.
Greenray presents the new Series T51 temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) that are designed for mobile applications requiring high shock and very tight stability. Available for operation in the 10 to 52 MHz frequency range, these TCXOs feature CMOS or clipped Sinewave output, and g-sensitivity of ≤7x10-11/g.
ONYX Series crystal oscillators (OCXOs) offer low phase noise, temperature stability, and low acceleration sensitivity. With excellent phase noise performance during vibration, these OCXOs are ideal for an array of applications including military, airborne, ground, shipboard, testing, and base stations.
The MAOC-410100 from MACOM is a wideband voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) ideal for applications including communication, test and measurement, and defense applications in the 7 – 14 GHz frequency range. With a flat output power and very low phase noise over its operating conditions, this device is fully matched and needs no external matching components.
With a 30 year heritage in YIG technology, Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) has unsurpassed capabilities as your single source for YIG Oscillators and offers 'best in industry' low phase noise. TMS has a large, self-contained YIG manufacturing and R&D infrastructure that ensures continuous YIG innovations, including the industry's only YIG filter that "locks" to a desired signal. Additionally, TMS has invested extensively in Automated Test up to 50 GHz, and maintains an on-site environmental testing facility.
Even in the harshest environmental conditions, communication links in high rel communications and radar applications must always operate with reliability and provide a clear image. In order to keep frequencies quiet for clean and precise pictures, radar and satellite tuners will utilize high performance crystal oscillators. However, this presents another problem of larger size, weight, and power constraints.
