Should I Use a GPSDO or Atomic Clock in my Satellite Application?

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Apr 10, 2019 11:10:34 AM

There is often some confusion as to which timing device would work best in satellite communication applications. Should you use a standard oscillator, GPS Disciplined Oscillator (GPSDO), or atomic clock (cesium and rubidium) in your satellite application?

5 Great Engineering Laptops (Plus Free CAD Tool Guide)

Finding the Best Performing Engineering Laptop


Our engineering team at Bliley is growing, which is great, but it also introduces some new challenges for small business like ours... finding the best performing engineering laptops for our engineers.

We want to give our engineers the best tools available and create an environment where they can be their most innovative and do the best work of their careers.  Of course, a key to this whole equation is the technology they use day-to-day to get those next generations products designed. We recently kicked off a search for the best laptops that are perfect for engineering workloads. As you can probably imagine, the ideal laptop for an engineer needs to have great compute and graphics power.

The battery life needs to last most of the day (because what’s the use of getting an ultra-portable engineering laptop that has to be tethered to a power outlet all day?!?).  The CAD tools an engineer relies on every day require a lot of memory to run smoothly, and most engineers prefer to work with multiple monitors, so expandability is important too!

How OCXOs Establish Precise Frequency Control

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Apr 3, 2018 6:30:00 AM

RF engineers are aware that temperature variations are the most significant factor contributing to frequency drift in crystal oscillators. Other variables affecting frequency output, such as humidity and pressure, can be easily alleviated with a hermetically sealed packaging of the crystal in a vacuum, or in an inert gas such as nitrogen. Controlling temperature for precise frequency output in a crystal oscillator circuit, however, requires a higher level of electronic RF design ingenuity. Enter... The Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO).
