Highly Stable Reference Oscillators with 10 MHz, 50 MHz & 100 MHz Frequency Output

Pasternack has released six new free-running reference oscillators that generate a highly stable and accurate output frequency response with low phase noise and spurious performance levels. They are available with single output frequencies of 10 MHz, 50 MHz or 100 MHz and have stability levels of +/- 5 ppm and are aging-rated at less than 1 ppm.

These reference oscillators are ideal for use in phase locked loops, function generators, frequency synthesizers and receivers for communication, radar, navigation, surveillance and test and measurement applications. They use a high-stability internal crystal reference as an integral part of the phase-locked assembly with a buffered amplifier output stage for improved ruggedness. The oscillators provide a highly reliable single output frequency source and excellent performance with respect to temperature stability, induced noise and overall efficiency.

Additional typical performance features include an output power level of 7 dBm, phase noise as low as -150 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset and low spurious output of -70 dBc.

These modules operate over the full temperature range of -30°C to +70°C and require a single positive DC voltage supply. They are available in either a compact SMA connectorized package with DC bias pins, or a true surface mount package outline that has a downloadable Gerber file for the mounting footprint. These rugged SMT and coaxial package designs are highly reliable and meet stringent MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for shock and vibration.
