OCXOs 101
Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator Basics

An OCXO or Oven controlled crystal oscillator is near the top of the food-chain when it comes to quartz based frequency control devices, superseded only by the mighty DOCXO or Double Oven!  The frequency output of a quartz oscillator is dependent on the temperature of the quartz crystal.  You can see in the figure below that temperature can have a significant impact on frequency of the oscillator.

RF and Microwave Design can be Enjoyable!

Don't believe me? Many of us already know how designing can easily become extremely long, boring, and tedious. This is especially true for all you RF and Microwave Design Engineers!

Spending hours upon hours designing, finding problems, fixing problems, then repeating the process all over again...It all can become so mentally draining. 

Am I bringing back bad memories? Sorry, time for the good news...

So how can you make the long and tedious design process easy (and possibly even enjoyable)? 

You guessed it... Automation and design tools are key. 

Having some great design tools on your side can release a significant burden off your back. These tools can save you time and dramatically increase your productivity. Our Top 4 Productivity and collaboration tools will help skyrocket your productivity even further.

Today, we thought we'd help you out by sharing these 18 CAD design tools that can lead to a more simple & enjoyable design session.
