OX-204 Ultra Low Noise Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator

OX-204 Ultra Low Noise Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator

The OX–204 is an Ultra Low Noise OCXO designed for applications that have a need for uncompromised phase noise performance in a 1" x 1" package. The OX–204 achieves a noise floor of <-175dBc/Hz, without compromising the close–in phase noise at 1 and 10 Hz. The OX–204 is the latest addition to Vectron's family of low phase noise products.

Designed to meet the challenge of delivering extremely low phase noise floors without compromising close-in phase noise, the OX-204 was engineered from the crystal out, to deliver uncompromised phase noise performance in the smallest footprint on the market today. Targeted at critical applications in Instrumentation, Test & Measurement, Radar, Communications the OX-204 provides +/- 20ppb temperature stability over the industrial temperature range, in an industry standard 25.4mm x 25.4mm package.

Key Features:

Phase Noise: -135dBc/Hz @10Hz offset

Phase Noise: -175dBc/Hz @10kHz offset

Temperature Stability of ±20 ppb from -40° to 85°C.

Output frequency: 10.0 MHz

Aging: 0.5 ppb/day

Supply Voltage: 12V

Output Configuration: Sinewave

Package: 25.4 mm x 25.4 mm x 15 mm

In addition to the OX-204, Vectron also offers a family of Low Phase Noise products, along with innovative clock path technology including OCXOs TCXOs, XOs VCXOs, VCSOs and jitter attenuators that provide ultra low jitter timing solutions.
