Which Frequency Reference Technology is Right for your Application?
Satcom references typically require a very low phase noise, stable 10 MHz reference. The noise requirement stems from the fact that the link frequencies are so high that that the 10 MHz phase noise has to be very low due to frequency multiplication.Frequency multiplication degrades phase noise by 20*log(Fm/10 MHz).
Software Defined Radio
Many SDR systems involve multiple radios that must be stabilized and triggered precisely. Embedded oscillators in the radios must be disciplined and the trigger points be exact. Novus stabilized PPS references reduce PPS pulse to pulse jitter to below 1 ns.(NR6720-HS)
