New Oven Controlled SAW Oscillators for Instrumentation, RADAR and Electronic Defense Systems

Rakon has introduced a new family of Oven Controlled SAW Oscillators in a miniature 25.4 x 22 x 12.7 mm SMD package (soldered by reflow). These OCXO's operate at frequencies of 400 MHz, 500 MHz, 600 MHz, 800 MHz, 1 GHz and 1.2 GHz.

This LNO series of OCXO's are designed for ground-based and shipboard RADAR, test equipment, and airborne systems where size and weight are critical.

Among them, the new LNO800E1 is a low noise, low power Oven Controlled, Voltage Controlled, SAW Oscillator (OCVCSO) operating at 800 MHz and powered by a low +5V supply. The 800 MHz signal is generated from a 400 MHz fundamental frequency, followed by a low noise frequency doubler.

Key Features of these OCXO's:

  • Excellent phase noise performance (typical values):
  • 137 dBc/Hz @ 1 kHz offset
  • 160 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset
  • 167 dBc/Hz noise floor
  • Broadband jitter less than 10fs (frequency offset: 10 kHz to 100 MHz)


  • Instrumentation & test equipment
  • Ground-based and shipboard RADAR
  • Light weight airborne systems (e.g. UAV)
