Buy OCXOs - Immediate Oscillator Pricing for Design Engineers

Posted by Rob Rutkowski on Oct 6, 2020 8:30:00 AM

Have you noticed how difficult it seems to find transparent pricing for frequency control & crystal oscillator components? If so, you're not wrong. Traditionally, it has been difficult to find quick, standard pricing for all things frequency control. Instead, you're basically forced to go through the long quoting process to even get an idea of expected pricing. So why is this? In this post I'm going to explain why OCXO oscillator pricing has been traditionally hard to find, and how Bliley's innovative pricing approach will make your procurement process so much easier.

Also, be sure to check out our OCXO immediate pricing guide at the end of this post!

Avoid These Disastrous 5G Timing & Sync Problems (With Solutions!)

Posted by Rob Rutkowski on Sep 2, 2020 8:30:00 AM

The world is officially hyped to get their hands on new 5G technology. In fact, there was a recent spike in excitement when Verizon announced the release of the first 5G compatible phone, Moto z3.

However, there is still a long way to go until 5G networks are available nationwide. As we get closer to that point, new timing and sync problems are arising.

Let's take a look at some of these foreseen timing challenges that are coming with the implementation of 5G networks. Then, we'll cover some possible solutions to these problems.

The Secret to Low Phase Noise in Crystal Oscillator Circuits

Posted by Rob Rutkowski on Feb 20, 2020 9:06:00 AM

Quartz crystal oscillators are the high and mighty option for low phase noise and added frequency stability in circuit design. Yes, simple oscillators like those made with resistor-capacitor (RC) or inductor-capacitor (IC) resonators are fine for some circuits. But if you're dealing with higher performance applications in aerospace, military, and space industries... you're going to want a higher performance crystal oscillator that can maintain low phase noise & strong stability. Otherwise, you'll risk deviating from the very specific (and many times critical) center frequency selected for your design.

19 Popular Cube Satellite Companies in Today's Market

Posted by Rob Rutkowski on Feb 4, 2020 7:28:00 AM

Welcome to the new world of CubeSat Manufacturers! These small satellites are becoming more and more popular in today’s new space industry. Their increasing popularity is mostly because of their small, lightweight, and inexpensive designs. The standard 1U Cube Satellite is 10cm x 10cm x 10cm in size. However, since their inception in 1999, new Cube Satellite companies have developed more variations in size to meet desired payload levels. A 1.5U, 2U, 3U, 6U, 8U, 12U etc. are now offered to meet customer's growing specifications.
