Jitter & Phase Noise in Timing References

As communication speeds increase, system timing requirements need clock oscillators and other timing components with better noise performance. Jitter and other noise components of the reference clock have a direct impact on the efficiency of the data transferred between devices. Higher jitter from the timing source translates to high noise levels in the system and in most cases potential loss of data. The improvement in jitter performance helps boost data transfer and system efficiency.

This white paper provides an overview of jitter and phase noise in crystal oscillators, which are commonly used as system timing references. CTS products that provide solutions for frequency references with low noise performance will be introduced at the end.
